Oakland vs LA Angels by GameChanger
I think there is great value on LA which I think great play off team this season, especially their hitters which a making great combination of power and speed much nedeed last season.
Today on the mound for Oakland will be Triggs. Triggs didn't have many play time last season, he mostly played from bullpen in the last couple of outs in the game and in minors he had 167 out of 168 from bullpen. I think that he isn't used to play from the start of the game and certanly his stamina will be questinoable in the later parts of the game. LA has expericend hitters and I think that they will raise his pitch count early in the game.
For LA Skaggs will be on the mound, he is lefty and he is main reason why I think that Angels will dominate in this game. Oakland was one of the worst teams in hitting last year and especially against lefties. Angels on the other side are 9-1 in last 10 lefty starts and certanly pitchin will be deal breaker in this game, especially when considering that Skaggs is very good left pitcher who hides ball very good while pitching.
I think that LA has far better hitters and bullpen, altough on the first glance these two pitchers seems very similiar to stats I think that Skaggs will have far more bigger advantage against bad hitting team which is always struggling against lefties. Also, Escobar,Calhoun and MVP Mike Trout - following with Pujols and Calhoun are certanly huge threat against unexperienced Triggs.
