There will come a time this season—like a roll of the dice—when the Los Angeles Angels will need a lucky break.
Regardless of the $154-plus million payroll, the quirks and unknowns during the long season are too great for any team to just cruise along without befitting from more than a few “ground balls with eyes,” or a Bill Hall-like spring…in October.
That’s the beauty of the game: In a season as long, up-and-down and sideways as the MLB, anything is possible.
And without question, for a team to win the World Series, regardless if it is the best thing in baseball since the last "Baseball's Best All-Time (fill in the blank here)," it will take more than one or two rabbit’s feet in the clubhouse—and on the field.
The Los Angeles Angels are not an exception.
Sure, the odds for winning the World Series has the Angels tied with the Detroit Tigers atop the board (7-1). However, if the 2013 Halos are going to hoist the trophy at the end of the year then these five “breaks” will have to go their way.
