    The Angels' apparent dysfunction seems to stretch back years, judging from a report by Scott Miller of CBS Sports. Miller reports that, in 2011, owner Arte Moreno threatened to fire then-GM Tony Reagins if he couldn't trade for outfielder Vernon Wells within 24 hours, effectively backing Reagins into a corner. That might partially explain the remarkable, and disastrous, result, which had the Angels taking on $81MM of the $86MM remaining on Wells' contract, while also giving up Mike Napoli in the process. The Jays, meanwhile, traded Napoli to the Rangers for Frank Francisco and cash.
    Wow if true

    Then it's only fair to fire Dipoto and rehire Reagins

    Christ.

    We may be a permanent mess if that's true. Maybe he learned his lesson after watching Wells, though.

    a good read and some good nuggets in there about Moreno, but it seems like the author tapdances around Pujols, slams Torii and then slams Moreno for the fight like its his fault.

    “Albert, you'd better get your facts straight,” a seething Hunter told Pujols.

    Pujols said something back, and Hunter jumped him for being a bad teammate and pouting all season whenever he failed to get hits in a game, even in games the Angels won … and now he was going to call others out?

    “Shut up, Torii,” Pujols snapped.

    why no quotes or anything concrete in the middle paragraph, that paragraph right there is the title of the ****ing story!

    BUT... fight aside... the Moreno stuff is pretty interesting

    To be fair, it may just be that no one was able to understand what the hell Pujols said.

    It was then that Hunter, from across the clubhouse, lost it and charged Pujols.
    Dare I say it?

    If tempers run in the family, maybe Torii's son wasn't innocent......Uh Oh!
