Looks like the Yanks are gonna land The Unit after all since Selig OK'd the trade today, and that the Dodgers are still gonna unload Shawn Green to the D'Backs. That bites.
But that doesn't bite nearly as bad as Angels owner Arte Moreno wanting to rename the team the "Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
". What the **** is that all about?!? Absolutely the most idiotic thing I've ever heard. Two entirely different cities in the same team's name? Hell, they're even two different COUNTIES! Orange County people HATE being associated with Los Angeles County. Two totally different worlds, despite both being "SoCal". Pisses me off somethin' fierce, dammit! All for a few extra marketing bucks? ****, please. *******. Makes me practically want to root AGAINST them...
Glad to see the city of Anaheim is sueing their stupid asses because of it. Violates the terms of their lease with the city and it's stadium.
On a happier note, the HOF voting is tomorrow. One of my all-time favorites - Wade Boggs
- is up for election. He better be freakin' unanimous. No other new shoo-ins this year, so that should open the door for another deserving great - Ryne Sandberg
- to get in there this year as well (after falling short last year).
One last note, my dad went golfing with HOF'er Robin Yount
a couple weeks ago (they have common friends in AZ), and got me a cool customized autograph from him.
