Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno is worth an estimated $3.3 billion in cold-hard cash. He’s among the elite who have actually benefited from an economic standpoint during the ongoing global pandemic.

Despite this, the Angels have decided to furlough employees at a level that’s raising eyebrows around the MLB world. This includes the amateur scouting department ahead of the draft later this summer.

It’s not a great look at a time when a large amount of Americans are drowning from an economic perspective during the age of COVID-19.

It also goes without saying that Moreno and his Angels have been blasted to no end for making this me-first decision.
