Whose stupid idea was THIS??? 

Looks like the Angels have a new name:
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

I know that they were obligated by contract to have the name "Anaheim" in their name, and I know that they WANTED to have the name "Los Angeles" in their name, but this is just STUPID! Almost as dumb as naming a professional hockey team after a movie. The owners should have just bit the bullet and kept Anaheim Angels OR tried to renegotiate the contract. It's not like they are scraping around for fans - they had the 3rd highest season attendance, behind the Yankees and the Dodgers. Giving your team a dumbass name isn't going to make you more fans.
