BP Daily: The real divisional show
Sox vs. Yanks is nice, but Angels vs. Rangers has become a compelling rivalry
While most of the mainstream media's attention is zeroed in on the Bronx this weekend (East Coast bias!), there's another American League division race being contested -- one in which the stakes might actually be higher. It's generally understood that in the clash between the Angels and the Rangers in the AL West there can be only one winner. The consolation prize for second place isn't the wild card (which usually belongs to the AL East); it's more likely an early start on October tee times.
