I think to really integrate itself with the Southern California culture, they should put a new stadium in a gated community.

Maybe in the new city, we can get a cool and edgy new name.  Something like Trash Pandas.

Let's not all get distracted with where another ballpark might be built.  The most important thing here is protecting the grey field mouse that could be endangered at the construction site. And c

6,500 feet is not an ideal elevation for baseball. That's why the Sky Sox aren't staying.

I was just saying it would be nice if a Major League Team did make its way to The Springs someday . At the moment, Colorado Springs is a big city and all, but the suburban population is very sparse like El Paso, TX. Also, Colorado Springs is getting a replacement Minor League Team next year.

Help me out here.

What has having the Angels and Disneyland exactly done for the city of Anaheim?

The city looks like the same middle class to lower middle class craphole that surrounding inland OC cities are.  Fullerton, Tustin, Buena Park, Fountain Valley, etc.

I've been to a couple of the Anaheim high schools - they certainly aren't pouring extra money into those.  

 

So what exactly has the city gotten out of these two cash cows for the last 50 years?  I am genuinely curious.  Are sales taxes lower in Anaheim?

Fullerton is a craphole?  Huh?

What about the area where the NFL team was going to be put in the City of Industry right at the 57/60.

Los Angeles Angels of Diamond Bar

I would love for them to build a stadium there.  Centrally located between Orange County, the IE and LA County.  Lots of land surrounding the stadium for Arte to develop as well.

It’s a bottleneck no matter where you’re coming from. 57 going north from OC sucks. 60/10 going east from LA sucks. 60/10 going west from the IE sucks. There’s a reason that land is vacant.

I am not an OC expert.

Is Fullerton and Fountain Valley a step above Anaheim on the craphole-o-meter?

Yes Fullerton and FV are a step above most of Anacrime.  Anaheim in general has its good areas and crappy areas. The 92807 area of Anaheim is nestled between Yorba Linda and Anaheim Hills and has low crime and highly rated schools.  The same can't be said for West Anaheim. If the angels leave and the city of anaheim drops the ball on redeveloping the stadium area, I think that could really hurt home owners in the area, which i am.

Long Beach would be awesome, huge city, very diverse, has some character, lot's of freeway access.  Also Seal Beach would be great because still in OC, again near freeways, and of all that relative empty Navy land, but probably not for sale.  If you are going to build a new stadium I think you are better off going for a unique socal beachy experience and make it a destination rather than a situation similar to the existing suburban stadium.

There is very little freeway access to where the LB Post sportswriters are suggesting.

There is a blue line stop 10 minutes away per the article.  LB is able to handle it for a week with the LB Grand Prix.  Don't know how a baseball team would do it.

 

As far as seal beach - are you talking about those protected swamplands?  And the freeway access is no bueno.

Was thinking the same thing. at least from this area you can see the downtown LA skyscrapers.

the first thing i thought of at this suggestion was the difficulty of trying to get into long beach for a game. the traffic is already insane because it's where all of the international shipping comes in. adding a major sporting event with 30K+ people into the mix would be a way to keep a lot of people home, especially with there only being one freeway in and out (hi nate!) of the city.

it also needs to be within shouting distance of LA since that's the name of the team.

The name debacle will be a millstone around Arte's neck until the day he sells the team.  

The only other major franchise that has that kind of name headache is the Washington Redskins.

Yeah, I can't see downtown LB working at all, nor most other parts due to the difficulty just getting in to most parts of LB during rush hour.  Just seems like there is a lot of empty land down around PCH/2nd Street and Seal Beach, and the nexus of the 405/605/22, but yeah, some is a wildlife refuge, some looks like oil wastelands, that big Boeing facility, etc.  Who knows just blabbing.
