The Yankees get such big deals because they are the YANKEES, not because they are the "New York" Yankees. That is a team with a tradition of being a good team, and wins more often than it looses. It also has a more "national" fan base, whereas the Angels just don't.

Nobody outside LA cares if the Angels become "from LA," and people in LA don't care because they have the Dodgers.

If he wants to get a better TV deal, he needs to build a better team - a team with staying power. One World Series win is not going to do it - no matter what city the team is "from."

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- Los Angeles doesn't want its name associated with the Angels.

The city of Los Angeles filed a brief Wednesday supporting Anaheim's lawsuit that claims the name Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim violates the team's stadium lease.

One really has to wonder if he wants to move the team. Pissing off both the city you're in and the city you're trying to attach to the name of your franchise is not the greatest way to appeal to your "fans".

Of course, the Rams also played there back in the day, moved to St. Louis and started winning SuperBowls. So maybe Moreno wants to follow in their footsteps (ignoring Nov. 2002 for a moment).

Then they should call themselves the New York Angels. That makes just about as much sense.
