Angels owner Arte Moreno refuses to detail what happened with Dodgers trade – Orange County Register

Pressed on those, Moreno said: “I would rather not talk about that. That wasn’t going to happen and it’s not happening.”


About 15 minutes later, when Moreno was reminded that his customers would like more detail on why a reported deal that could have helped the team didn’t happen, he didn’t budge.

“I’m sure they would,” he said. “There’s a lot of things that people would like to know and they’re not going to know. It’s water under the bridge. We’ve moved on.”

Moreno did not seem at all upset with the questions or the fact that he’s recently been vilified by much of the fan base.

“One year I spent about 300 million bucks and someone wrote how cheap I was,” he said.

Way to not only blow up a good trade but then be completely tone deaf about it. Thanks, Arte.

This is a very bad look for Moreno.
