Dodgers, Angels building toward Freeway Series?

It’s been 51 years since the Angels moved into the Dodgers'' neighborhood and while both teams have had their share of success there’s never been a Freeway World Series. But with both teams spending extravagantly in 2012 — the Dodgers acquired Hanley Ramirez, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett, Zack Greinke (below right), and Hyun-Jin Ryu to go with stars Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw while the Angels have added slugger Josh Hamilton (below left) to a lineup that already included Albert Pujols, Mike Trout, and Mark Trumbo — the chances have never been better for the rivals to meet in October.
