Angels in America (Southern California, Specifically)

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Los Angeles Angels. California Angels. Anaheim Angels. Hmm...

  • The first of these really seems the strangest, its appeal limited mostly to its throwback status. Admittedly, a Los Angeles-Los Angeles rivalry could be fun, however artificial.

  • Given the team's desire to appeal to a wider audience, the second of these seems most logical.

  • My sense is that Anaheim's public has supported the Angels just fine. Seems a shame to cut the cord on the third name.

  • Dare we consider a fourth way? There is a precedent.

    However it goes, it's nothing to get into an uproar about. The days of sports teams all having the correct geographic name are long gone.
