Both pitchers have been solid this season, as Patrick Sandoval has allowed six earned runs in 26.2 innings, while Frankie Montas has given up 18 earned runs in 43 innings. You could make a case for the Athletics based on who is on the mound, but the Angels at this cheap of a price is even more attractive. Regardless, the Athletics are a bad baseball team overall and still have major offensive issues. Give me the Angels.
