Angels have survived and thrived despite injuries

Angels have survived and thrived despite injuries
The loss of Jorge Posada and Alex Rodriguez simultaneously is painful for the Yankees. But consider that the Angels have been operating successfully all season without Nos. 1 and 2 starters John Lackey and Kelvim Escobar.

At this time it appears the Mets are running a hospital ward. But the Phillies have persevered for three-plus weeks now without Jimmy Rollins, perhaps their most indispensable piece.

New York's teams do have the injury bug. The Yanks were tied with the Rangers for most players on the DL (nine) when April ended and the Mets were at seven. Still, the outbreak is not quarantined here. Teams had disabled 178 players (up significantly for the same period for a second straight year) and had lost 4,132 games through April.
