It's as if someone spiked the water cooler on the Angels bench with massive amounts of Red Bull and a case of 5-hour Energy shots.

Or maybe it's just an injection of youth in the form of 20-year-old, five-tool speedster Mike Trout.

Whatever it is, a team that sleepwalked its way through a lackluster April looks refreshed and rejuvenated in May. Some would even say resuscitated after the Angels went 8-15 and fell nine games back in the American League West in that first month.

Now look at them, crashing into walls to make spectacular catches, diving to stop grounders, mashing balls way beyond outfield walls, dashing around the bases and getting shut-down starting pitching and relief.
