Naming Shenanigans on mlb.com

After the Angels became the "Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim."  Mlb.com decided to change their name from the pull down tab of teams from "Anaheim" to "Angels," as opposed to "LA Angels" as the team had wanted.  Now all of the team sites on the pull down tab in mlb.com are referred to their team name not city.  Like the A's site is under "Athletics" now, not "Oakland."

Not that I'm a naming purist, I just find it a little absurd.

It's funny to see how one name change brought all this about.

At least we're higher up on the tab and the Yankees are on the bottom.
