Angels could reach .500 W-L in 2012

The Angels record currently stands at 4,053 and 4,079, a .498 Win-Loss percentage. I took a sharp pencil and a blank piece of paper and figured that if they finish 94-68, they'll be 4147-4147 or an even .500.
Now finish the year with 95 wins, not an impossible or unlikely goal, and we're there!


  1. Hard to believe with all the good teams that the Angels had in the 70's and 80's that they are below .500 over their lifetime.

  2. The 80's had some good teams, for sure, but the 70's... man those were some lean years. The 90's also had some pretty mediocre teams that just never pulled together and went anywhere. But always fun to watch!

  3. Awesome calculation, especially if the season ends up that way.
