Sources: Schism Between Angels' Dipoto, Scioscia Will See One Of Them Let Go
Published August 26, 2013
ARTE FOR ARTE'S SAKE: CBSSPORTS.com's Scott Miller wrote Angels 1B Albert Pujols' 10-year, $240M contract is the "most expensive example of the organization-wide dysfunction that Moreno has both created and fueled with his temperamental and impulsive decisions." Moreno since his first full year as owner in '04 has "fired close to 40 members of the front office, baseball operations department and scouting and medical staffs." The Angels "maintain a skeletal front-office staff in many areas, and one of the leanest game-day staffs in all of baseball." Many people "both inside and outside of the Angels organization agree that Moreno's reign of terror has created obstacles not only impossible for the club to overcome, but ones that have shifted the Angels into reverse." The Angels under Moreno are an organization "that no longer even knows who it is" (CBSSPORTS.com, 8/23).
