Halos Have a Chance to Change Their Early Season Narrative

1-5 stings. No matter how you put it, this Angels team has not been good enough in any way.

However, while their record is obviously lackluster right now, the Angels have a good chance to rebound this weekend. They host the Texas Rangers for the first home series of 2019 this weekend, and the four game set will be a chance to potentially be a winning team by this time next week.

Obviously a sweep of any team is difficult, but the Rangers are one of the least talented teams in the entire American League. They are in the depths of a rebuild, and present a golden opportunity for Angels’ hitters to get in rhythm. The pitching staff has a chance to build confidence as well against a poor lineup from the Rangers.

The Rangers currently have a better record than the Angels, sitting a 3-2 after a win against the Astros on Tuesday. Despite the difference in wins, this Angels team has more talent on their roster than the Rangers. It will be the first home series since Mike Trout signed his extension, and the energy at The Big A will be as electric as ever.
