The Angels achieved a historically significant milestone during the course of the season by improving their all-time winning percentage to above the .500 mark. The Angels won their 89th game of the season on September 9 to ensure that they would become the first post-1960 expansion team to finish a season with an all-time winning record since the Houston Astros at the conclusion of the 2006 MLB season.[1]

They finished the season with the best record in all of Major League Baseball, but they were swept by the Kansas City Royals in the American League Division Series.

Ernesto Frieri struggled as the closer and was later replaced by Joe Smith. He was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Jason Grilli later during the season. It wasn't long after Frieri was dealt to Pittsburgh until Huston Street arrived after a deal was struck with the San Diego Padres. Street became the new closer.
