Yankees at Angels Podcast: Playoff Atmosphere Out West


This week has produced so many crazy events whether it be the four hour rain delayed game on Tuesday, the makeup game in Baltimore on Thursday, or the back-to-back extra inning games. New York(87-55) is now out west to continue their ten game road trip against an old rival, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (78-65). Just as the Yankees are trying to hold off the Red Sox in the AL East, the Angels are in a race out West with the Texas Rangers.

For this series, the Halos will throw out their three top pitchers in what should bring a playoff feel to this series. The Yankees did struggle against the O’s, but it goes to show you that the bottom three of this division are going to play a huge role in who takes the title home. Just look at the Red Sox, who lost three of four to Toronto after the Yankees swept them last weekend.
