Toronto Blue Jays vs Los Angeles Angels MLB Free PicksDate/Time: Sunday, August 23rd, 3:35 PM Venue: Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Anaheim, CA TV: FS-W Radio: KLAA 830 Opening line: TBA R.A. Dickey (7-10, 4.14 ERA) will be on the mound for the Jays, who have won the last 6 games he has been the starter. The Angels (63-58) came into this week knowing that another string of defeats would likely see them fall out of the final Wild Card spot in the AL. They responded very well, taking 3 of 4 from the Chicago White Sox, which allowed them to maintain a half game lead over the Baltimore Orioles. That lead still looks very shaky, though, and this series is a test that they will want to pass with flying colors as they head into a stretch of games against teams with sub .500 records. The good news for the Angels is that they are still in control of their own destiny right now, but any type of losing streak in the coming weeks could see that taken away. Garrett Richards (12-9, 3.50 ERA) will take to the hill for the Angels on Sunday.
