With the Angel off-season officially spiraling out of control, the Angel big wigs have taken to the newspapers and airwaves with some spin control so bold and brash that it would even make Joseph Goebbels blush.
The Halos need more offensive depth but are sure they can find it from within. So says Herr Scioscia.
Everyone is comfortable with the Angels having each of their major free agent offers come up short. That is what Comrade Reagins would have us believe.
Not overspending is being done strictly for the good of the fans. Baghdad Arte Moreno will tell you that until he is blue in the face.
To all of us fans on the outside, these statements all seem like obvious lies being thrown out there in a desperate attempt to placate an enraged fanbase. They just seem to be selling this bill of good so ardently and frequently that I can't help but wonder if the Angel front office actually believes their own propaganda?
Propaganda! It isn't just for governments anymore!!!
