Update about Angels Stadium news

52 posts in this topic

Updated story from Bill Shaikin about the situation with the stadium: https://www.latimes.com/sports/story/2019-08-14/angels-have-a-third-option-in-their-stadium-search

To summarize, the news talks about how the Angels can really play in the stadium until 2029 until the lease expires. That's the third option. The other two options include a new stadium in Long Beach or a renovated/new stadium in Anaheim. The Angels have until the end of the year to say something.

I'd expect them to remain in Anaheim. I would love to see a plan for a new stadium in Anaheim. That would be pretty neat.

There was an artist rendering that I saw a few years ago about a direction the Angels could go with their current stadium. Obviously it's just a concept, but it looks very nice.

I can tell you with personal knowledge of the situation that the City doesn't expect the Angels to remain in Anaheim. That can change obviously with concessions but as it stands currently, the person directly responsible expects them to leave.

Well, my buddy plays Xbox with Scott Kazmir, and he heard that the Angels are going to move to San Clemente.

I do the insurance for the City and have regular contact with the City manager and who controls all of the funds and anticipated budget. There are already budget figures out excluding the stadium and authority from the City. I work with every City and County in California...

The rendering is super ridiculous lol they couldn’t make a rendering a little more realistic and with better graphics ? It’s 2019 for Christ’s sake.

I think Arte is going to ride that rent free train until he’s in his early 80’s and sell the team in 2028. 

Rent free?

I think the reason why that renering looks like that is that it was done in the early century.  Arte has been floating the big center for over a decade now.  If he had the money and backing, he would have done it by now and extended his lease.  Instead we have what we have now.

Get ready for the Las Vegas Angels of Summerland.  Only area that is still giving funny money out.

EDIT: Oh wait, Deniz's spot was the Carl's Jr. off Katella.

Reagins, is that you?

Responsible managers plan for all possible outcomes.  The fact that they have budget plans that exclude the stadium does not mean they expect any particular outcome.  It just means they are not idiots.
