    By the way, those weren't "Household Superstar" names either (Guerrero should have been since he was in Montreal). So that means your saying Angel fans no their baseball? Oh, you would hate to admit that too.

    Um, I was just answering your question. We all know the Angels have been a very good team from '02-'08. My post, and this whole thread for that matter, has nothing to do with that. Also, anyone who followed baseball even casually should've known Guerrero and Colon in the early part of this decade.

    While the original post has no link and I'm sure an absurd methodology to back up its findings, it's also pretty much indisputable that the Angels had a relatively small fan base pre-World Series run.

    Lets pull up the Angels attendance:

    From 1966-70: Over 1 mil per year with the exception of 69, in comparison the Cubbies were pulling 700k to Wrigley Field.

    From 70-79: from 700k to 1 mil per year in the early part of the decade to 2.5 mil in their first AL West win in 79, increasing every year from 76-79.

    From 80-89: Over 2 mil per season with the exception of the 81 strike.

    From 90-99: Over 2 mil until 94, then picks up again in 98 and 99, which happened throughout baseball.

    From 00-07: Over 2 mil until 03, then over 3 mil every year since.

    The Angels have had a pretty good fanbase since the mid 70s, most teams are going to look small in attendance compared to Dodger Stadium.

    Haha! I am over this debate. Angels just picked up Teixeira! Think what you will about the Angels and their fans (which includes me).

    Big deal: Angels acquire Teixeira from Braves - MLB - Yahoo! Sports

    Big deal: Angels acquire Teixeira from Braves
    11 minutes ago

    Buzz Up PrintBOSTON (AP)—The Los Angeles Angels acquired slugging first baseman Mark Teixeira from the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday, a trade that further bolsters the team with the best record in the major leagues.

    The Angels, with a whopping 11 1/2 -game lead in the AL West and clearly aimed at making a World Series run, sent infielder Casey Kotchman and minor league pitcher Steve Marek to Atlanta.

    The deal came two days before baseball’s deadline for making trades without waivers. Teixeira was among the top names in the rumor mill, and should help a club that wanted to add another big bat to back its potent pitching staff.

    They better win it ALL this year or sign him to a long term contract or this is a waste of a trade considering Kotchman is younger with a high upside, and the Angels had his rights for the next three years. Ballsy trade by Reagins...

    Kotchman is only 3 years younger - not a huge difference there. And Kotchman's upside at absolute best may still not be 30+ HR, .300 BA, 120+ RBI, All Star, Gold Glove - which is exactly what they got in Teixeira. Kotchman was one of my favorite Angels, but we basically got a straight up trade for him where last year the price was Kotchman, Saunders and Brandon Wood or Howie Kendrick. Remember, they also have Kendry Morales that has a higher offensive upside than Kotchman waiting for an opportunity to play. He's already proven he could hit .300 with better power at the MLB level with all the action he got last season.

    I say this was as good of a calculated risk as you could ask for at the trade deadline. If they win, everyone is happy. If they don't win and sign him, everyone is still happy. If they don't win and don't sign him, Morales can step in and there shouldn't be any drop off from Kotchman.

    Hate the Angels all you want, but how many of you would want an owner like Arte Moreno.
