Are the Angels now the worst organization in baseball? It seems almost impossible that any franchise could ever step to the Marlins and dare displace them atop the dysfunction power rankings. Yet somehow in the last six months and culminating in the resignation of Jerry Dipoto, Arte Moreno and company have shown the world that when it comes to reprehensible behavior, they go to...
The rocky relationship between the Los Angeles Angels and Jerry Dipoto officially came to an end on Wednesday afternoon when the general manager officially resigned. This came amid reports early Wednesday morning that there was going to be a sizable shakeup in the makeup of the Angels front office hierarchy. Dipoto’s resignation also shouldn’t come as much of a surprise...
Jerry DiPoto packed up his office after the Angels’ win over the Yankees on Tuesday amid heightened tensions between him and manager Mike Scioscia, and reports say he is likely leaving his position as the team’s GM. FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that DiPoto packed up his office, but he says there is no indication...Read More
Buried in a recent article about the nonexistent stadium lease talks between the Angels and Anaheim is information that, when combined with the report that the club anticipated ticket sales to drop, would intrigue any budding conspiracy theorist. Seeing as this is the Internet, where conspiracy lives at every corner (look out!), I thought I’d share. Entering 2015, the Angels had...
On paper it seems like a fair matchup. Arte after the 2002 Angels’ world series win. Josh Hamilton, representing the pressures so many star athletes face in our celebrity culture. Arte Moreno, representing the pressures so many baseball owners face in our capitalistic culture: to play moneyball rather than baseball. Yet in reality Arte is fighting against so much more than just...
What are the Texas Rangers thinking in making a trade for Josh Hamilton? The question was posed to me on a radio show this week, a day after the deal in which the Angels sent Hamilton back to Texas for a player to be named later or cash considerations. The terms of the deal sound far more cold and business-like than the emotional drama that surrounded the trade and Hamilton’s...
Before the Los Angeles Angels decided to eat $68 million to basically give Josh Hamilton back to his old team, owner Arte Moreno explored ways to void the 33-year-old’s contract. To the surprise of no one, the MLB Players Association fought Moreno and won. An arbitrator ruled that the Angels could not punish Hamilton for...Read More
Angels owner Arte Moreno told reporters Friday that the team could pursue action against Josh Hamilton for potentially violating his contract with the team by using drugs. “We have a contract with Hamilton, and in that contract, there’s specific language that he signed, and his agents approved, that said he cannot drink and use drugs,”...Read More
Angels should have their names on the back of spring training jerseys. Other teams do. The true fans want to know the new players be it veteran or prospect. Major leaguer or minor leaguer. […]
As of March 2014, Angels owner Arte Moreno, 67, has a net worth of $1.3 billion, according to Forbes. That puts him at No. 416 in the list of richest people in the United […]
