Found April 29, 2012 on The Juicy Online:
It wouldn't be soon, but years from now the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim could be leaving the City of Anaheim for a new stadium located in downtown Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Angels' owner Arte Moreno and Angels Chairman Dennis Kuhl met this month with AEG President Tim Leiweke about getting a new stadium built for the team, as AEG is a local expert in Los Angeles at building and financing sports facilities. 
Angels spokesperson Tim Mead has reportedly said that the Angels are looking at getting a new stadium built.
The team "may have a good chance" of getting a stadium built by AEG, as if the NFL, City of Los Angeles, and AEG can't make a deal -- in the next two years -- on bringing an NFL team to the city, then the Angels could be on deck to receive a stadium on the site now reserved for Farmers Field.
Neither AEG nor the Angels would discuss the meeting they had with each other. It's being reported that "if" the Angels will exercise an escape clause in their stadium lease in 2016. If they do not, then the team will have to remain in the City of Anaheim until the year 2029. 
Angel Stadium, in 2016, will turn 50-years-old. The stadium last received a renovation in 1997.

Halos see Mike Trout as spark, not savior

Will Bryce Harper or Mike Trout Have Better Major League Career?

The time is now.

The Los Angeles Angels of Los Angeles?

You'd think by now that the citizens of Anaheim would've learned that when Arte Moreno wants something, he usually gets it (Carl Crawford excluded).  This proved to be a wonderful trait this last off-season when Moreno laid out big money to land C.J. Wilson and Albert Pujols (yeah, I know, no homers, give it time people), but now that Arte's attentions have turned to...
