Game 1 Pick: The Los Angeles Angels didn’t announce a starting pitcher at the time I posted this article, but I’m not sure if it matters. The Angels have been the most disappointing team in baseball this season, and they’re one of the worst teams to back in terms of profit. Chris Flexen has also been pretty solid this season, which includes a 3.80 ERA at home. Give me the Mariners to take game 1.
Game 2 Pick: See above. I have no confidence in the Angels, and they’re comfortably the worst team in baseball to back in terms of profit. I want nothing to do with the Angels. Not now. Not for the rest of the season.
