Jerry Dipoto needs to be our GM
 
After trading for Greinke, it'd be cool if he was. Thoughts? Murray isn't that great of a GM soo...:p:

Taylor Swift 07-30-2012 06:35 PM

airforceones25 07-30-2012 07:03 PM

Who is going to be our starting goaltender rotation, and who comes in as relief at 7:00 left in the 3rd?

PhoenyX 07-30-2012 07:16 PM

Sounds like an awful idea

Gliff 07-30-2012 07:29 PM

Ya lets see what he can do without spending 300 mil in an offseason.

Moreno needs to be our owner.

Bob Murray doesn't cut the checks here, but neither does Samueli for that matter.

This. Dipoto is a good GM, but the Moreno is the key. If Samueli would and could spend frivolously, Murray would be in a much different situation.

Moreno would make us the Los Angeles Ducks of Anaheim. No thanks.

the Los Angeles Mighty Ducks of Anaheim of the Honda Center presented by Pepsi Max.

Another thing, Moreno will probably want us to go trade for Scott Gomez. :shakehead

Moreno would be smarter than we think as he probably wouldn't purchase a hockey team in southern California because there is no profit in it.

The Angels just landed a huge TV deal that makes Pujols' contract look small. Pujols will earn $240 million USD for 10 years. The new TV deal with Fox Sports is worth $3 billion USD for 20 years. The Ducks may need to contact Arte in the department of marketing and increasing popularity, but it's pretty hard to increase those areas when we're a small market to begin with. The only positive money maker for the Ducks is to make the playoffs consistently to generate more revenue for the organization.

I was opposed to Arte re-naming the Anaheim Angels, but his sales savvy says to gain more notoriety you have to change the team name to a global name that could be recognizable. By associating the Angels to Los Angeles makes the Angels more identifiable with the latin background market to sell via radio, etc... And Arte knows that winning brings along with it a spending culture. So he can fire a GM if he wanted to in order to bring a winning culture, which he did. But having that extra money by way of the TV deal, Moreno can take on Pujols and Wilson's contracts while absorbing terrible deals of Bobby Abreu and Vernon Wells.

yeah, an active owner who has a ton of money, makes a ton of money...and wants to win!

that's awful, you're right!
