The End of the Angels Season.

Call me a bitter Yankee fan, most people around here do, but last nights game marked the end of the Angels.

The Angels were given a big break not having to face Beckett in game one, and they blew it.

Now they face Dice-K in game two. A lot of people seem to be pointing out Dice-K and his high walk total as the reason the Angels can beat him.

People figure the Angels will work walks and cause chaos on the base paths.

The only problem, is that this year the Angels saw very few pitchers per plate appearance. They're free swingers and that works in favor of Dice-K. I honestly don't think game 2 will be close. And does anyone think the Angels can win down 2-0 and having to go to Boston?

The Angels, once again, look like a team built for the regular season and not the playoffs.

Hey dman,

A lost by the Angels tonight will spell: DOOM!.

The Angels are ridiculous free swingers. Dice K could throw one at Vlad's toes and he'd go for it. I really thought (hoped) they would take the Red Sox down this year, but it'll probably be the other way around.

Don't give up on the Angels just yet - Santana could do it tonight!

10:55 Eastern time...the Angels need some timely hitting. They have a chance in the 4th.

Well, another sad showing by the Angels. Some spoilers. They're practically handing the Sox another championship. Ugh.

The Angels will never be the same after they lose in Boston. They had their chance and let it slip away.

Hey, the Angels are up 1-0 at Fenway. A miracle.

The Red Sox have three runs on the house. The problem for the Angels is the they are in the Boston's house.

The Angels pulled it off, primo. It took them 12 innings but they did it!
