What do you think TooCool? The Angels will be moving soon or not.

I'd be more comfortable seeing the team move than Moreno getting public money. This Tustin thing is just a way to make Anaheim nervous..just a big game to him. I'm betting the city caves in

Anaheim needs the Angels. They have lost a lot of businesses the past few years to other cities in OC. Losing the Angels would be devastating.

If the Angels bounce, Disney would jump on that land in a heartbeat!

Exactly. Who owns Anaheim city hall? It's not Arte Moreno that's for sure.

All that's missing is the sweetheart deal, and Tustin might give Moreno what he wants. Tustin is also not that much worst of location than Anaheim, for one thing the city is nicer than Anaheim.

A stadium where MCAS Tustin used to be? The traffic would be gawd awful.

The deal is ownership wants to lease the land for $1 for 66 years. Moreno wants to sign a contract saying he can leave after 20 years. He'd basically control over 100 acres of real estate for the next 46 years, without investing more than a buck.
IF this does go through, hopefully he uses the money he's saving to invest in some talent. Embarassing to be an Angels fan right now

Source: Angels, Mike Trout talking monster extension
So far they're discussing a 6 yr/150 million deal for Trout. He wants to get the deal done before the season starts as well.
I might be crazy but I was honestly expecting Trout to be in the 30 million a year range, not 25.

If they don't get it done before the season, next season he will be a Yankee
