Tonight, the Tustin City Council is scheduled to have a closed-door session discussing whether they want to make a run for your Anaheim Angels of Anaheim, who are whining loudly about how Mayor Tom Tait is a big meanie to them because he doesn't want to reward billionaire owner Arte Moreno with hundreds of millions of dollars in subsidies. Because of this, Moreno broke off lease negotiations with Anaheim late last week, effectively calling his team a free agent–but are they going to wow people like Vladimir Guerrero, or be the next Vernon Wells/Josh Hamilton/Gary Matthews Jr/Bo Jackson/Von Hayes/Dave Parker/insert-your-favorite-washed-up-free-agent-signing here?
All of this was the subject of my weekly KCRW-FM 89.9 "Orange County Line" commentary yesterday.
Gotta go to KCRW's website to listen to it, so do that at this link. Best part? When I called Tustin "Rustin"…HA!
