LA Times: Angels clubhouse was “Twenty-five plus one.”

Who cares?  He's gone.  It'll be the best thing for the Angels franchise moving forward.  Let's focus on '24 and beyond.

Personally I think it's a huge mistake to let him go, and we're going to regret it for years.

That said, other teams have lost marquee guys and been fine. The Cards lost Pujols to us. Still made it to October. The Mariners lost Jr and ARod, went on to set the AL record. Nags with Harper, etc etc

The problem here is this org couldn't field winners when we actually acquired marquee guys. I can't see us improving because of this.

Moreno has put us in a position where we will have to massively pay to compete, because we have no farm (though we do have a young, interesting core). 

That's not a good way to do things but it can work. The problem is Arte has shown for a decade he's not willing to do what needs to be done, financially. 

Sure, he's spent a ton. He just always, somehow, spends on the wrong guys. Yes we need pitching. And it's always expensive. And maybe we spend like crazy on pitching.

But we need offense, too.

I’ve always thought that maybe Ohtani and the three ring circus media frenzy that followed him around was probably a distraction. Throw in a little jealousy and envy and that might be a recipe for disaster. Of course not one player will admit to any of that but you know it’s something that probably existed.

If this turns into a slow leak to the media of how difficult it was to adjust to Ohtani, how the players weren't comfortable, etc.. thats fucking pathetic. He moved on; its time to move on too. It looks very bitter and immature on our end if this shit starts leaking out. Nobody said a single negative thing about him when he was here for 6 yeears; don't fucking start doing it now.
