The March 6th, 2014 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including new Angels stadium could cost $700 million, Halos might carry eight relievers and much more...
The Monkey Says: The pissing match with Anaheim continues. This isn't really a direct threat, more just the Angels letting Anaheim know that they have done their research on what it would take to move elsewhere and that they are at least thinking about it. It is really just another shot across the bow.
The Monkey Says: Gross. They'd basically want to carry a long man (likely Blanton) in the event that the young starters don't have enough endurance yet. That means they'd blow up their bench so that Joe Blanton can pitch four times in the first month of the season. I hate this idea so much. It does open up the possibility that Grant Green would get more consideration as a full-blown utility infielder. He played shortstop in yesterday's game and didn't embarrass himself, so we'll see if they keep exploring that option.
