I Love L.A.

Lots of movement since the last time we crossed paths prior to the All-Star break. Boasting the best record in all the land, the Angels rise to the top of this column. At this point, Los Angeles looks like the most well-rounded team in baseball. As is the case every year though, the Halos could use another big bat to protect Vlad Guerrero (Mark Teixeira would certainly suffice ...), but don't expect owner Arte Moreno to give up any of his big prospects at the deadline. Moreno has always been committed to building the franchise from within. Meanwhile, the Brewers are the hottest team in baseball. Following CC Sabathia's third straight complete game, the FSN Wisconsin crew waxed poetic about the hulking left-hander, referring to him as "the best pickup in team history." And finally, a 1-8 stretch sends the Padres back to the cellar after a one-week reprieve.
