The Story: Good team chemistry vibes are permeating the Angels roster.

The Monkey Says: The Angels invested in that chemistry this offseason, so it is nice to see that it is working. Then again, I think most teams feel like they have good chemistry at the start of the season. When the losing starts, now that’s when the true chemistry gets revealed. Let’s hope we don’t get to that part of the Angels’ season for a long, long time.
