The January 25th, 2012 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim including Arte Moreno named LA Sports Executive of the Year, exploring the future for Bobby Abreu and the Angels, Topps already has a Albert Pujols as an Angels baseball card and much more...
The Monkey Says: And here I thought Frank McCourt was going to win. Darn! By the way, seeing how the LA Galaxy won their league championship and still didn't win this largely meaningless award, it only underscores just how little anyone cares about soccer.
The Monkey Says: This is simply funny because of the supposed Abreu-to-Detroit rumor which was obviously conjured up before Detroit shocked the world and signed Prince Fielder. I definitely agree with the sentiments of the article that the Angels probably want to dump Abreu's salary but can't really afford to give him up until they have a better idea of whther or not they will need him as an insurance policy for Morales and Trumbo.
As for Fielder, Angel fans should be ecstatic that he didn't go to Texas, though it would have been nice to have them saddled by a bloated long-term contract (just like the Angels!). It will be curious to see if Texas pulls anything out of their sleeves to address their apparent hole at first base.
