If they make moves, it’s possible to win the AL West. However, if the pitching rotation stands as is, it’s likely the Angels will likely remain in the middle of the AL West.
I personally don’t put much stock into what Mike Scioscia said at the end of the season. Scioscia has said that the Angels aren’t as bad as the perception is. Yes, they are. Now, Injuries have played a major role in the downfall.
The Angels will still have ample time to make some moves and improve their overall squad for next season.
They’ll face the Oakland A’s on Opening Day, April 3rd, and it’s important that they are ready. What’s most important is building a team around Mike Trout, something the Angels have tried multiple times to do. However, the success rate of that build isn’t good.
Hopefully, the Angels will win more than 74 games next season. The Angels must be healthy and have an upgrade to the starting rotation. I fully expect the Angels to be better next season; however, i don’t see them competing for a title just yet.
