AL West, A Two Team Race [David Stefanini]

This is a "what you see is what you get" division. The Angels have been in first place throughout the season and will more than likely stay there.
The Seattle Mariners have more important things to worry about than the Angels, like the Yankees closing in on them for the Wild Card. The Mariners have been one of the hottest teams in baseball recently, and have taken control of the Wild Card. Until a few days ago, when the New York Yankees got into a virtual tie for the lead.
I think this pattern will stay true throughout the year. The Mariners are going to be battling with the Yanks for the Wild Card, but will turn up empty in the end. The Angels should be able to pull away from the Mariners.
Look for the Mariners to be watching the Angels come October.
