OAKLAND -- Maybe the three-day All-Star break will put a brake on the Los Angeles Angels' freefall. Maybe that team in late May and June was the real Angels and the team on the field for the past couple of weeks has been a feeble facsimile.
Maybe, but it's looking like Tuesday's All-Star Game might be the second-half highlight for baseball in Anaheim this summer.
The Angels are flat. Not flat as in uncarbonated, but flat like a tire.
