Just when you think this team can’t possibly get any worse, they go and do this. The Los Angeles Angels have had a season that can best be characterized as Jekyll & Hyde. There has been zero consistency in the way this team plays regardless of good or bad. The whole season has been a constant flow of ups and downs that have basically evened out to keep them in playoff contention.

Here are 5 key stat/storylines that paint a picture of a team poised to miss the playoffs.
