Art Moreno spends money on acquiring players unlike other owners, lowered beer prices and has provided the city of Anaheim with the most money it has ever received under their revenue sharing agreement. As silly as the name Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim sounds who cares? He can call the team whatever he wants as long as he puts a good product on the field and provides a bang for you buck value at Angels Stadium. More power too him if adding Los Angeles to the team name brings in more revenue that he puts back into the team. He has even forced cheap skate Frank McCourt to finally spend close to what he has promised over the last 2 years to compete for the Los Angeles baseball market. True baseball fans just want a good product not accurate geography.

Listen sir...your comments about the fact that nobody cares about the geography of the team, lets put it this way...angel stadium is nowhere near your terrible city of los angeles. we do not want to be affiliated with your dirty city. how about u take back your name and leave it at that. california angels i understand, but los angeles angels of anaheim is the stupidest thing i have ever hurd of. we are not even in los angeles county. thank god! finally, most importantly of all...arte moreno is not putting a good product on the field. he promises to spend the money to get the big hitter yet he is reluctant to spend more than vlademir guerrero, who in fact is well underpaid for what he does. i would rather have a winning team, a competing team, a great team than 1 dollar off a beer at the game. i can drink beer at home for 20 times less, i go to the game to enjoy a good game not a good beer!

I don't see why the Angels need to change their name. At least Anaheim is in the same state as Los Angeles. Consider the Jets and Giants. They call themselves New York teams, yet they play their games in New Jersey. Besides, as bad as the Dodgers are, L.A. needs a team like the Angels to root for. I don't care if the Angels call themselves the San Bernardino Angels. I will root for them no matter what their name. BTW, I live in Texas. The Dallas Cowboys are building a new stadium in Arlington, TX. Arlington is in Tarrant county, not Dallas County.

Two years later after the name change it appears Art Moreno is right. Angels have made an 180 degree turn in the teams finanacial health.
Now we all could understand why Frank McCourt/Dodgers tried their best to prevent the name Los Angeles Angels.
