Will we catch the Angels?

Here we sit at 47-44, three games over .500.  We've been playing top-notch ball for the past month, beating the likes of Atlanta, NYMets, Phili, Seattle, the Giants, and the White Sox.  And yet, we don't seem to be gaining much ground on the Angels because they're on a tear of their own, minus a blip against Seattle.

Here are both teams' remaining schedules:

Angels have 70 games left:
13 against Oakland
18 against the weak sisters (TB-9, Seattle-9)
17 against the powerhouses (NYY-7, BOS-7, CHW-3)
22 against the other wildcard contenders (TOR-6, BAL-6, DET-4, TEX-6)

A's have 71 games left:
13 against LAA
12 against the weak sisters (Seattle-6, KC-6)
7 against the powerhouses (NYY-3 and BOS-4)
39 against the other wildcard contenders (CLE-6, DET-6, MIN-10, BAL-7, TEX-10)

More food for thought:
If the Angels win 35 games (play .500 ball) the rest of the way, they'll get 90 wins.
The A's will need 43 wins (.600 ball) to tie them.

So, as of right now, do you believe we can catch the Angels?
