What's wrong with this sentence?

From the Dallas Morning News: "The hot hand this spring has been Gary Matthews Jr. who will open in center field at the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday."

At the Los Angeles Angels? AT? The Angels are a team, not a place and Los Angeles isn't even where they play. I should maybe get used to it. Thanks to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, it's going to be a season filled with tortured displays of inexact language.
