After reading about Arte "I have the means to move the team elsewhere" Moreno and the lease negotiations with the city of Anaheim, it sure makes me glad I'm a Dodgers fan. It would seem the one angle Mr. Moreno has forgotten about is the fans. You know, the ones who give him 3-million-plus attendance every year, while all they've gotten from him is a lousy, overpriced team and lower beer prices 10 years ago. There once was a time he was an owner to be admired, but now at least when it comes to Angel Red, maybe we are seeing his true colors.

Perhaps the power of a prepositional phrase could have vaulted "New Coke of the Coca-Cola Co." to commercial success. We're kidding. We hope the Angels are too. Let this one roll off your tongue for a while -- the Los Angeles Angels ... of Anaheim. Team officials hope the new moniker will attract more national attention, more TV revenue and more corporate sponsorships by claiming a larger slice of the Los Angeles media market's 16 million people.

Arte Moreno now has permission from the city of Anaheim to stop it already with the weirdest team name in all of baseballdom: the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He can call the team whatever he wants. Moreno has been frankly embarrassing the Orange County city since 2005 with the trick he pulled on his agreement with the city. The accord said that the word "Anaheim" had to be in the team's name. And so it was. Just relegated to the tail end, where, over time, it was often forgotten, which was obviously part of the plan.

The Anaheim City Council is expected to vote Tuesday to enter lease negotiations with the Angels that could keep the team in the city through 2057 but enable the team to drop the clumsy "of Anaheim" suffix from its name. Under the proposed deal, the Angels -- and not the city -- would pay for a major renovation of Angel Stadium. In return, Angels owner Arte Moreno would rent land surrounding the stadium for $1 per year and secure development rights to that land for at least 66 years.

A Look at Jobs: Is Los Angeles County's job market falling apart again even as the employment situation improves overall in California? The picture may become clearer on Friday with the release of September employment statistics for both the state and the county. The August figures showed the county's always-volatile jobless rate rising to 8.6%, up from 8.4% in July and the highest level since January's 8.9%.

The Anaheim City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to end its legal challenge to the Angels' name change. After losing in an Orange County Superior Court jury trial in 2006 and before a state appellate court panel last month, the city's only recourse would have been to appeal to the California Supreme Court. As expected, the council voted "to take no further legal action" against the baseball team, Mayor Curt Pringle said.

One in a series of stories marking the Dodgers' 50th anniversary in L.A. -- It was a far different world the night Paul Pettit drove in 10 runs for a team called the Hollywood Stars. This was a minor league town then, with the Stars on one side of it, the original L.A. Angels on the other and oceans of bad blood between them. The Dodgers would bring the major leagues the next year, as if the magic in baseball couldn't come from anywhere else.

In another defeat for the city of Anaheim, a state appeals court ruled Monday that the Angels can call themselves the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for the rest of the season. The 4th District Court of Appeal rejected the city's bid for an injunction that would have blocked the Angels from continuing to use the Los Angeles designation.

The Anaheim City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to sue the Angels immediately if they change their name to the Los Angeles Angels and to consider suing them even if they do not. City officials, concerned that a lawsuit against their baseball team would make the NFL skittish about awarding a football team to Anaheim, extended reassurances to the NFL on Tuesday.
