What a distinction a day could make. Yesterday, the Halosphere was nonetheless filled with playoff hopes, still we saw a really robust, unpredictable street ahead in that would really direct anywhere…whether or not it’s to playoff glory or Bustville. Today, although, thereâ€™s one thing within the air, a vibe thatâ€™s permeating all of our collective fan consciousness. Thatâ€™s 'cause today, the Angels are true contenders & a brand new force to be reckoned with within the crazy Wild Card race.
Days like eight/31/2017 donâ€™t come all in that always; my head continues to be considerably foggy & punch-drunk, still nevertheless woozy I got from keeping up with Billy Eppler & his acquisition of Brandon Phillips & Justin Upton, it’s well value it 'cause this team is now loaded up & agree for battle. The- Halos, & Mike Trout, have a brand new acceptable mate, pal in left field, & Phillips goes to be a viable, & veteran, presence within the infield. This Halos team was already the Team of Destiny in our eyes, although, still moves like we saw yesterday made the remaining of the baseball world stand up & take notice.
Las Vegas sports books additionally took notice. Take a look at how much the Angels jumped up within the World collection odds:
Yes, the Angels went from 150/1 to 40/1 in a matter of a couple of hours, & abruptly the ToD gets some recognition from the fellows who make a living off of noticing ToDs. This is it. The- large time. The- Halos are all in on this yr, & consider they’ve one thing special within the core group of dudes weâ€™ve seen fighting for each win until the last out all season long; the front workplace knew they only needed a number of additional chips of their stack before they might confidently push them all to the middle of the table.
All the opposite teams, division leaders & Wild Card chasers…you’re on notice. The- 2017 Angels have come to play, they usually have the firepower & the mojo to pull off one thing special & spectacular. Anyone in that stands of their means…well…they’re in for a surprise.
The remaining of the season, & the remaining of our Angels fan lives, starts tonight. Letâ€™s do that.
