It just wasn't meant to be for Angels
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The distinct sound of boxing tape echoed through the Angels' home clubhouse Sunday afternoon, with players packing their belongings for the winter solstice. They hugged one another and said their goodbyes, with very few acting as if they had just been swept out of the playoffs.These Angels are on their way home after the Red Sox beat them 9-1 for a three-game sweep in the American League Division Series. Boston will go on to play the winner of the Indians-Yankees series, and Los Angeles will be left with questions about why it was defeated so handily when it was one of the premier teams throughout the season.
