It’s starting to become a distinct possibility that by the time the July 31st MLB trade deadline rolls around, the Angels will be in the seller, and not buyer, position. And to be completely honest, it might be in the franchise’s best interests to be sellers.

With five games remaining before the All Star break, the Halos will play one more in Chicago and then fly into Oakland to face the always tough Athletics. Texas, on the other hand, will play today in Cleveland and then finish up against the Baltimore Orioles.

After the season resumes, it will be make or break time. The Angels will get the Mariners and Texas will face the Red Sox. Normally you’d think this favors the Angels, but with almost the entire Boston roster on the disabled list, Texas could take the series. Los Angeles then gets the New York Yankees, Texas, the Detroit Tigers—then what could end up being the wild west showdown that determines the season for the Halos.

On the horizon for the Angels are four games versus Texas, three against Boston, and then two more against Texas to end the moth, bringing the team to deadline day.

As of today, the club is 4.5 games behind with six in the loss column. While certainly not impossible to make up for past Angel teams, it might be too much for this group.
