Let's all hope the Dodgers sweep the White Sox. The Angels are only 1/2 game behind the White Sox for 5th best record in the American League.
Oh, and we've got another no-hitter (Liriano for Twins) in the 5th inning.
<F the Dodgers>
My thoughts exactly :)
I happen to be an Angels fan first, and Dodgers fan second. I've spent a long time wanting to see a Dodgers vs Angels Freeway World Series. This is looking like a great chance this year. So, maybe you if hate the Dodgers so much, you should be hoping the Angels knock the Dodgers out in the World Series.
That would mean the Dodgers would need to win and I would never do that. I like the White Sox better than I like the Dodgers.... and I hate the White Sox.
< I like the White Sox better than I like the Dodgers and I hate the White Sox.>
I think I can top that.
IF the Dodgers played the Rangers, I think my heart would root for the Rangers.
I read on this board not long ago that the only reason Dodgers have the best record in baseball is cause they are in the NL West...obviously the weakest division in the MLB.
Guess that's why you guys trounced the lowly diamondbacks tonight, right??

The Doggers were my 36th favorite team, right after every other major league team, the SLC Bees, the Arkansas Travelers, the IE 66ers, the Cedar Rapids Kernels, the Orem Owls. the ASL Angels, and the DSL Angels. Yep, the Doggers are my 7th favorite MINOR LEAGUE team.
So out of curiosity I took ESPN's RPI rankings and averaged them by division. Those rankings have issues, but they are at least objective and take into consideration WHO each team won against. We've also had enough interleague play now that they are beginning to show the difference between the AL and NL. (Note that the AL isn't as much better than the NL as in years past... the AL is currently 75-65 against the NL, which would project out to roughly 87 wins over a 162-game season.)
Here are the RPI averages by division:* AL East - .5254* AL Central - .4902* AL West - .4975* NL East - .5128* NL Central - .4882* NL West - .4884
So, yeah, those people that said the NL West is the weakest division in baseball were wrong.
"The Giants are my 2nd favorite team, and they are "older" than the Dodgers anyway. "
Well, we definitely don't agree on 2nd favorite team. At least you got to see an Angels vs Giants World Series. I want to see an Angels vs Dodgers World Series.
