I am semi retired and living in Colorado Springs now. I heard some very disturbing news about Arturo Moreno, even way out here in Colorado. All of you out in The OC who raised cain because Arturo Moreno changed the name of the Anaheim Angels to los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 6 years ago, but wimped out didn't boycott, listen up and listen good. Arturo recently made a big promise to all the fans and the sports world how he was going to do EVERYTHING IT TOOK to sign star free agents like Carl Crawford and Beltre. Arturo welched and did just the opposite. The name change 6 years ago pales in comparison to this. Arturo has got to go, and the only way that will happen is if the fans don't repeat the same mistake they made when Arturo changed the name to Los Angeles Angels, even though Anaheim is in The OC. Arturo is a fraud, always has been.

For those who would like to see the team go back to Anaheim Angels, IT IS TIME TO BOYCOTT GOING TO THE GAMES--NO WIMPING OUT THIS TIME.

They got outbid on Crawford, and I would not have paid Beltre's asking price.

So they over paid Vernon Wells...31 HR, 88RBI, .273 BA

They have the best defensive outfield in baseball with Hunter, Bourjous, and Wells. And some pop in the lineup with Kendry coming back. And the standard great starting pitching. Seems like the Angels should do well this year.

And rip out that ugly pile of rocks and move the Big A back to left field.

California Angels is their second name. In 1961, when they formed, they were the Los Angeles Angels (since they played in Wrigley Field in LA and Chavez Ravine).
"An expansion franchise, the club was founded in Los Angeles in 1961 as the Los Angeles Angels, and played their home games at Los Angeles' Wrigley Field (not to be confused with Chicago's stadium of the same name), which had formerly been the home of the minor-league Los Angeles Angels. The team then moved in 1962 to newly built Dodger Stadium, which the Angels referred to as Chavez Ravine, where they were tenants of the Los Angeles Dodgers through 1965. The team was founded, and owned for its first 36 years, by entertainer Gene Autry. During Autry's ownership, the team was often competitive, making the playoffs three times but never winning the pennant. The Angels were denied a World Series berth in particularly heartbreaking fashion in 1986.

The team has gone through several name changes in their history, first changing their name to the California Angels on September 2, 1965 with a month still left of the season, in recognition of their upcoming move to the newly constructed Anaheim Stadium in Anaheim at the start of the 1966 season."

Before they do any of that, they need to get the beer prices down to maybe $0.85 for a 16 ounce cup.

C'Mon man. You got the Sky Sox. I wish they built Security Service Field with a nice view of Pikes Peak instead of Stetson Hills homes. (I through out a first pitch at a Sky Sox game there a few years ago.)

I would love to get one of those.

Later there was the little "a" with the halo and the Capital "A" with the halo.
