With the A’s victory today versus Cleveland, the A’s hold a seven game lead over the Angels, with ten to play.
And yet, the Angels still control their own destiny. They don’t need any help from any other team to win the AL West. How weird is that?
If the Angels win their last ten games, they will finish no worse than a tie for first place.

Man, seeing Rich Harden back out there again was sweet. Seven strikeouts in three innings? Wow. When I watch batters swing through that 87mph changeup, I just get all giddy happy. Please, please, please stay healthy.
