Even with Teixeira, Angels not the best team
September, 11, 2008
The Angels have clinched, already. They also have the best record in the majors (by just a hair). So are they really the best team in the league? Mark Teixeira put them over the top? When Teixeira joined the Angels, they were 66-40 (.623) with the third-best run differential (+43) in the American League. Today? They're 88-57 (.607) with the sixth-best run differential (+62) in the American League.
