As the battle brews with competing Facebook pages, one set up by Angels fans and the one set up by Tom Tait fans, I have this updated score.
KeepTheAngels is at 23,029 likes while Keep the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim page is at 1,320. For those doing the math, that 22,709 more…about a little more than half of a Big A crowd on Big Bang Fridays.
The difference is pretty simple. The KeepTheAngels site is all about the Angels and the other page is Memory Lane for the Angels in between Tom Tait promotions and isn’t that City Council majority in Anaheim awful? I guess the fans have voted.
If this were a prize fight, the ref would have stopped it by now. And that all said, until anyone hears what Arte Moreno has in mind with the team’s negotiations with the city, there’s really not much to say. The MOUs are loaded with disclaimers about nothing being cast in stone but the anti-Angels/pro-Tait crowd simply refuses to believe it. I’d like to see a new ballpark, built next to the current one, with all the bells and whistles you see at AT&T Park in San Francisco or CitiField in New York. Just imagine the labor jobs needed to build the new stadium and raze the old one?
