Angels fans can only hope!

Arte Moreno is exploring the possibility of selling the team, after 20 years as owner.

This is just such good news. Even Padre fans are pulling for them since we have gone through our share of bad ownership! The Angels have 2 of the most exciting players in the game and they should have built around them and started winning again by now.

Well I was a bit shocked to learn that the expected deal to sell the team didn't happen at all! The Moreno family is holding on to control of the Angels. So many fans' hopes were way up, too!

Perhaps change the name of the thread title to "Banished to Hell." Surprised

From the Athletic:

Quote:
Hug an Angels fan. [On Monday], owner Arte Moreno announced he's no longer exploring a sale of the club and will retain his role in 2023 and beyond. This comes after he said in August he would look to sell, which elated fans and offered hope Shohei Ohtani could be retained. That looks cloudier now. The Angels haven't finished above .500 since 2015 or won a playoff game since 2009.
