“He’s the worst owner in MLB by a long shot” “Trout and Ohtani are saved” – MLB Fans react to this statement of Team owner.
The owner of the Los Angeles Angels, Arte Moreno, is reportedly thinking about selling the team, which is a startling event. Since Moreno bought the Angels from Disney in 2003, he has been their owner. Jeff Passan, an MLB insider for ESPN, broke the news first.
The sale of the Angels could alter the course the franchise is currently on. Under the new ownership, a speculated Shohei Ohtani move may become much more plausible.
Ultimately, everything will depend on which owner or ownership group wants to buy the franchise. Given the size of the club’s market and the presence of two of the top talents in the game, Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout, on its roster, there will undoubtedly be a lot of interest.
Tweet from Jeff Passan –
The fallout from Arte Moreno selling the Angels would be monumental.
1) Opens the door to a Shohei Ohtani trade — or record-setting extension.
2) With enormous revenues, Angels still have never had a payroll over $183M. That’ll change.
3) MLB’s most hands-on owner is gone.
The stunning announcement caused many Angels and baseball fans worldwide to respond. One supporter applauds Moreno for selling the team. Despite having talents like Trout and Ohtani, the Angels haven’t made the playoffs since 2014.
Given how the team’s recent seasons have gone, Trout and Ohtani might be happy to have new ownership. It is astounding to be in such a significant market as Los Angeles and not have a payroll of more than $200 million.
The development of players in the Angels’ system appears to have been one of their main challenges over the previous ten years. Fans are hoping that moving forward, a new front office will be able to change that.
In general, it will be intriguing to see how the possibility of a change in ownership for the Los Angeles Angels plays out. For Angels supporters, this probably feels like a reviving moment that could turn the franchise’s fortunes around.
