Anyone else noticed this? ESPN mainly. They seem to want the Angels for some reason to get into the playoffs. Mike Trout fans? Weird.

It's weird to think it's weird to want to see the best baseball player of this era in the playoffs

Los Angeles is one under .500 and five back. The sports media rooting for them is like when the news media rooted for Marco Rubio.

I've often heard that the Angels draw the hottest chicks to their games, so perhaps that plays a role.

You are a Cubs fan. They are media darlings. Haven't seen you post anything about that being weird though.

Los Angeles has a bigger population than Minneapolis. This is the #1 reason.
