Dodgers: LA writer considers the Angels ‘most fun team’ in Southern California – Inside the Dodgers

For decades, the Dodgers were the preeminent baseball team in Southern California. That hasn’t changed even with the Padres playing competitive baseball for the past two years and the Angels having two of the best baseball players.

For the first time in a long, long time, the Angels look like a legit baseball team that could be making some noise in October. The Orange County Angels are currently nine games above .500 (21-12) and are second in the American League West. Mike Trout has an alien 247 wRC+, Taylor Ward has emerged as another potential star, and oh yeah, they still have 2021 AL MVP Shohei Ohtani. Not to mention that Angels-starter Reid Detmers just threw a no-hitter on Tuesday.
