This is it… The proverbial “do or die” situation for my Angels. The Halos are going into today’s game at home in a must win situation after losing the first two games of the ALDS to the Boston Red Sox at Fenway. Boston has won eight consecutive postseason games against the Angels, dating back to the 1986 ALCS when it came back from a 3-1 deficit. The young Jared Weaver is making his first postseason appearance of his pitching career. he will be facing veteran pitcher Curt Schilling.
In other MLB Division Series playoff news… Two of the teams — Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies — I picked to go on to the Championship Series are already out. Both were swept in three games. The Yankees, who I also picked to move on are in the same situation as my Angels, and it looks like Yankee skipper Joe Torre may be checking with Monster.com come next week.
