    Angels In Anaheim Through 2050 / 2065

    Development of the surrounding land, which will be done in concert with the city, is estimated to begin in 2025. An appraiser recently valued the 153 acres at up to $325 million with the stadium and up to $475 million without the stadium, but the city contends that it will see a significant increase in property and sales tax revenue from the development of hotels, shops and restaurants around a stadium that has sold at least 3 million tickets for 17 consecutive seasons. The Angels have retained the services of HKS Architects, which designed the Minnesota Vikings' new NFL stadium and has advised the Los Angeles Dodgers on their renovations. Under the agreement, the Angels must maintain 12,500 parking spaces, which would eventually require the construction of a parking structure. Angel Stadium opened its doors in 1966 and is older than every stadium in baseball except Wrigley Field in Chicago, Fenway Park in Boston and Dodger Stadium in L.A. The current lease was agreed on in 1996, when Disney owned the team. Moreno has sought full control over the stadium since he assumed ownership in 2003 and has intermittently flirted with relocation when negotiations with the city stalled.
    In the meantime, the city of Long Beach proposed a potential waterfront ballpark in hopes of luring the Angels. But a new stadium would reportedly cost more than $1 billion and wouldn't be ready before the 2025 season. With the Dec. 31 deadline on their current lease looming, the Angels became hyper-focused on negotiations with Anaheim in November.

    Al Bundy could well surprise.

    Wonder if they went after Korean dude who just signed with St. Louis.

    Need at least one other starting pitcher.

    Apparently an elite third baseman. But I thought the left side of our infield was okay already. We still are going to suck without some starting pitching.

    10. Los Angeles Angels: Reid Detmers, LHP, Louisville
    Who is Detmers? A polished lefty who pounds the strike zone, Detmers works off a low-90s fastball but has a plus curveball, a plus changeup and excellent feel for the art of pitching. His fastball plays up because he hides it well, and he fanned 167 in 113⅓ innings last year and was dominant in his four outings in 2020, with 46 K's in 22 innings. He might be more about a high floor than a high ceiling, but he could move quickly through the minors
    Why the Angels took him here: No surprise with this pick, as the Angels had been tied to a college arm all along and Detmers might be the safest pitcher in the draft. He might not have the upside of some of the high-velocity arms, but given the Angels didn't have a single pitcher make even 20 starts last season, they need a workhorse who can chew up innings. Detmers also is advanced enough that with the expanded rosters we expect to see this season in the majors, he could make an immediate impact for the Angels. -- Schoenfield
