The possibility of Shohei Ohtani‘s trade is the biggest off-court news in MLB. Many teams, including the Yankees and Diamondbacks, have shown interest in acquiring Ohtani.

Trading a star player like Ohtani needs the approval of the top bosses, and the top boss of Angels is considered by many in the league a tough person to deal with. Arte Moreno, the self-made billionaire, owns the Angels. While deciding about his team’s star player’s retention, he faces criticism for the inhumane treatment of his employees.

There have been multiple media reports about the harsh behavior of LA Angels’ owner, Arte Moreno. According to senior ESPN writer Buster Olney, the employees at Angels feel uncomfortable talking about their boss. They fear that their words can get them in the way of the temper of Moreno.

Olney quote the LA Angles former staffs’ words, “Moreno’s temper can rise unexpectedly, former staffers said, and the targets of his ire are pounded verbally — as if he’s hit them with a buzzsaw, in the words of one source.

The ESPN writer further explains, When you ask Los Angeles Angels employees about Arte Moreno, their posture — physical, and emotional — seems to change immediately. If they say the wrong thing, tell the wrong story, do the wrong thing, well, they run the risk of unleashing his temper.

Ohtani is among the best players in the MLB and the most marketable player of the Angels. According to ESPN, when Arte Moreno was approached in July for trading Ohtani, he got angry at the proposal. Morena does not want to give away his best player, and the management can not make a decision without his permission.

Arte Moreno had humble beginnings and worked up to the top of the chain. He has many times ruled over the decisions of his top management. Many general managers of Angels, like Tony Reagins, Billy Eppler, and Jerry Dipoto, have come and gone after facing the fury of his decisions. 

Many agents of the player have talked about his persona. According to ESPN, one agent says, “{He is} a self-made guy who has his vision about how things should be, and he’s not going to deviate that much from that vision. He’s not a bad guy to deal with — but he has really strong views, and that stubbornness can make him really difficult to deal with.”
