Re "A bumpy ride," Oct. 12 The Angels Flight funicular in downtown L.A. is a treasure that should be fixed and reopened as soon as possible. People aren't perfect and neither are the mechanical systems or structures we create. Those who can't live with the risk of rare (and nearly entirely nonfatal) breakdowns should not board airplanes, trains, buses, aerial trams or ski lifts either. Mechanical problems can be fixed. And human error can be mitigated through improved procedures, training, inspections and close supervision.

Monday through Wednesday: at Seattle Friday through Sunday: at Oakland When the calendar flips from August to September, the Angels are usually beginning to think about their postseason rotation. Not this year. But that doesn't mean they don't have anything to play for in the final month of the season. The Angels need a strong September to avoid their first losing season since 2003. And more than a few players need strong finishes if they hope to be back next season — only nine Angels are signed for 2011.

BUZZIE BAVASI (1977-84): Led the Angels into free agency, signing a multitude of big names. MIKE PORT (1984-91): Was GM for heartbreaking 1986 ALCS against Red Sox. DAN O'BRIEN (1991-93)

This was hardly the "A" team, not with names such as Quinlan and Wood and Matthews stretched across the backs of their jerseys. Somehow the Angels don't need stars to win these days, just talent, and they appear to have a roster brimming with it. No Vladimir Guerrero? No Torii Hunter? No Juan Rivera? No problem.

The Angels broke out of a four-game offensive slump today with a 7-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals in Kauffman Stadium, increasing their American League West lead over Texas to 5 1/2 games. Erick Aybar tied a club record with two triples, and Bobby Abreu had a big two-run double to back the pitching of Joe Saunders, who allowed two runs and 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings to win his third straight game since coming off the disabled list Aug. 26. The Angels scored all of five runs in their previous four games, though two came against Cy Young Award contenders, Kansas City's Zack Greinke and Seattle's Felix Hernandez.
