    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Angeles- a sleeper team? : In terms of road ERA, the American League has the Rangers at 3.15, the Yankees at 3.32, the Red Sox at 3.57, the White Sox at 3.66, the Angels at 3.79, Blue Jays at 3.84, the Mariners at 3.87 and the Indians at 3.98.

    Thanx Hill. The H/A variance in regards to Angel's pitching is noteworthy.
    Given their road ERA, it's .64 higher than that of TX. Yet the perception is that the Angels have better pitching than TX, or Boston...

    By "sleeper" do you guys mean they will/are sleeping while playing the Yankees?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Angeles- a sleeper team? : I wonder what Doctor/vitamins Ellsbury is using as he had 20 home runs in the previous 1,372 at bats in his career and this year astonishingly he has 19 home runs in 477 at bats.  Those must be some powerful vitamins!

    Here's a post about Ellsbury taking steroids by one of the "good" Yankee fans on the board. lol So glad you all like to spend your time insulting players on their own team board. Can't imagine what that's like.

    Maybe we need a new definition of "good" Yankee fans. JMO

    How many of you guys picked the Giant's to win the WS last year...The best team doesn't always win, it's team that's playing best that wins and a teams offense play a role but the pitching staff as whole is what in the end determines the winner. Last year the Rangers had a far more formitable lineup than did the Giants...Lincecum outpitched Lee, Cain outpitched Wilson. The Giant's pen outpitched the Rangers pen and the Giant's got some big hits (Renteria's bomb off Lee). End of the day it's hard to win a seven game post season series when you're #1 gets beat twice...

    So if you handicap the teams based on pitching, not just the starters but the staff as a whole...Weaver, Harden & Santana match up against any of the current AL contenders...not saying thier better than, just that when the game begins they've got the stuff to shutdown any lineup. The back end of thier pen might be thier achillies...See texas last year....

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Angeles- a sleeper team? : ERA rankings are venue induced. Angels have a home park 3.02 ERA/1.193 WHIP. In Fenway: 4.50 ERA/1.421 WHIP In NY: 9.00 ERA/1.471 WHIP IN TX: 3.88 ERA/1.216 WHIP When they play in Toronto, likely a similar scenario. Last 8 seasons vs. RedSox: In CA: 3.31 ERA/1.270 In Fenway: 5.05 ERA/1.540 WHIP If the Angels played in the A.L. East, they play 3 times as many games in A.L. East venues...and three times less in A.L. West pitching venues. Tell me this, Hill: How many times have the Angels made the PO's over the last decade? How many times have they been bounced early? What pct. of teams from the A.L. East have gone to the WS over the last 15 years?
