The Texas Rangers are looking once again to be the A.L. West champions as they have a comfortable 5.5 game lead over the Los Angeles Angels. This past week after the All-Star break the Rangers went 2-1 against the last place Seattle Mariners.
There could be a possible shake up in the standings at the top as the Rangers and Angels face off in a three-game series starting on Friday. So, the Rangers can either really expand their lead, or the Angels can make a race out of the A.L. West in the second half off the season if they can pull of a few wins in that upcoming series.
