From the info you have given us in the past, staying in Anaheim is the best deal for the Angels.A proposed waterfront ballpark aimed at luring the Angels from Anaheim to Long Beach could cost more than $1 billion and require public funding.www.latimes.com
>>A waterfront ballpark to attract the Angels to Long Beach could cost more than $1.1 billion, and the city has received a study that explores options for paying some or all of that cost, according to city documents released Monday night.
