Recently, a friend of mine returned from Israel and brought me back this:
The hebrew just repeats "Los Angeles Angels" (sorry Anaheim!). He said they only had two teams in the shop, the Skanks and the Angels. Crazy, huh?
Those of you who regularly read HH know that there has been much discussion over the years about Arte's attempt to "re-brand" the Angels as a classy organization that will eventually appeal to major national and even international markets. I have heard some of you speculate that this may be the reason why we signed Matsui over Vlad. While I understand the gist of this arguement, I am no buisness and marketing expert.
So what do you MBA's out there think of this?
