Ten years before Arte Moreno's latest P.R. disaster came Arte Moreno's first P.R. disaster. Or was it?

In 2005, when Arte Moreno was still the fresh-faced owner best known for cutting beer prices, Neil deMause wrote about the clunky move to rename the team. The following ran originally on January 5, 2005.

And so it's official. To the legendarily doofy sports names of yore--the ABA's Spirits of St. Louis, the NFL's wartime Phil-Pitt Steagles--we can now add a new contender: the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

The diverse and carefully constructed bullpen of GM and former reliever Jerry Dipoto.

Every day until Opening Day, Baseball Prospectus authors will preview two teams—one from the AL, one from the NL—identifying strategies those teams employ to gain an advantage. Today: two AL teams! Projected division winners Angels and their diverse bullpen of specific pieces, plus the Red Sox and their collection of same-position hitters.

Week 1 previews: Giants | Royals | Dodgers | Rays | Padres | Astros | Rockies | Athletics | Mets | Yankees

Why we are comfortable having the Kris Bryant service time conversation but not the Mike Trout service time conversation, and why we should be uncomfortable having either.

In 2012, Mike Trout was the best baseball player. He was so good that his delayed call-up to the Angels—for, it should be noted clearly here, completely non-service time reasons, but legitimate and honest concerns about his ability to produce after a difficult offseason (healthwise) and an interrupted spring training—might have even cost the Angels a spot in the postseason. He was so, so, so, so, so good.

Pitching Backward: Every Team's Pitching Depth, Ranked

39

Jeff Long

Which teams' rotations will survive the inevitable blowing up?

Last year Sam did some analysis to identify which teams had the most effective depth in their starting rotation. Sam noted just how fragile starting rotations are: that only about one team per league per year gets 25 starts out of all five starters, and most of the teams that do make the playoffs. He also linked to an article by Eno Sarris that found two-thirds of teams will have two starters get hurt at the same time—in other words, will need not just a sixth starter but a seventh at some point each season.

With the glut of recent injuries to key starting pitchers (Darvish, Lee, Stroman, etc.) teams are again reminded that no plan is strong enough to withstand 60 Newton meters of valgus stress. And so we will make an attempt to see which teams are best positioned to manage the loss of two key starters.

Dealing with addiction in a sport that wants to punish drug use.

As I write this, Major League Baseball hasn’t quite decided what to do about Josh Hamilton. Reports have suggested that Hamilton has met with league officials to discuss an incident during the offseason in which he used drugs, reportedly including cocaine and alcohol. Hamilton, who has had well-documented battles with substance use in his past, brought the incident to the attention of league officials himself. Now MLB is trying to figure out what the punishment should be for Mr. Hamilton.

Rumor Roundup: Trout Pulling the Trigger

6

Daniel Rathman

Mike Trout plans to be more aggressive on the first pitch, a Cuban sensation faces possible surgery, and a Dodgers outfielder is finding his trade market lacking.

Mike Trout plans to be more aggressive at the plate
“Locked and loaded on the first pitch”—that’s what the defending American League Most Valuable Player told reporters about the mentality he’ll take to the batter’s box whenever he heads there this spring.

The Angels closer is ready to talk extension, while the Braves might change course of a recent trade acquisition.

Huston Street and Jerry Dipoto expected to exchange extension proposals soon
Back in December, David Robertson and Andrew Miller each cashed in on elite contract-push seasons with four-year deals on the free-agent market. Robertson had established himself as a dominant reliever prior to 2014 and turned in another top-notch campaign in his first crack at the closer’s role, resulting in a $46 million payday from the White Sox. Miller hadn’t yet established himself at the same type of level prior to 2014, but his transformation from failed starting pitcher prospect to bat-missing relief ace culminated last season when he cut his walk rate nearly in half and finished with the second-lowest FIP ever by a left-handed reliever. The Yankees rewarded him with a cool $36 million.

Rumor Roundup: You Can't Predict Padres

Daniel Rathman

San Diego appears poised to put Wil Myers in the leadoff spot. Meanwhile, the Angels look to a prospect, and Colon is going to try hitting 50 percent better.

Angels evaluating Alex Yarbrough at multiple spots
The Halos don’t have much in the way of high-ceiling hitting prospects, but they do have a potential Factor on the Farm. Alex Yarbrough, a 23-year-old second baseman who batted .285/.321/.397 for Double-A Arkansas last year, is attracting attention from manager Mike Scioscia as a candidate for the big-league utility job.

BP's clinical psychologist brings his experience and expertise to bear in evaluating the impact of Zack Greinke's and Josh Hamilton's mental health histories on their on-field futures.

Reports of Josh Hamilton's relapse were an unwelcome reminder that baseball players are human, with all the struggles that come along with that. Two years ago, while Hamilton was a free agent, Russell Carleton wrote about a man who wanted so badly to stay sober. This piece originally ran on Nov. 12, 2012.

If you'll excuse me for a moment while I put on my other hat.
