Time is money, and this year, Orange County is doing what Orange County does best: spend money.

The Halos' rally monkey is opening the magic wallet after yesterdays report by Scott Miller of CBSsports.com that Arte Moreno has approved upping the Angels' $140 million payroll. 

Currently two games back of the AL West leading Rangers, the Angels lack offensively is the blaring flaw that keeps them from the conversations of upper echelon contenders.

Despite the necessity to shore up the brittle middle relief, the Angels priority rests with their inconsistent offense, currently ranked 18th overall.

A team built around struggling Torii Hunter and one-season wonder Vernon Wells needs another veteran bat to, one, create offense by means of high hit for average, or two, hit the ball out of the park.

With Carlos Beltran officially headed to the Bay Area brats, the Angels have to swindle something soon in order to stake their claim in a fast-approaching deadline.

A plethora of hot sale items are on display, yet only four names in particular have the OC swag to shake the organization at its core.
