Angels GM Reagins Steps Down; Team Likely To Look Outside Organization For Replacement
Published October 3, 2011
UPS & DOWNS: In L.A., Bill Dwyre wrote Reagins “was a loyal part of the organization for 20 years.” He was “on duty when the Angels traded away Mike Napoli and brought Vernon Wells on board for around $80 million.” Whether he was the “driving force in those decisions -- the current biggest aggravations for Angels fans -- is not clear and never will be.” Dwyre: “It happened on his watch and his watch needed to end to demonstrate to the people buying tickets and all those red jerseys that 2012 will not be more of the same” (L.A. TIMES, 10/1). ESPN L.A.’s Mark Saxon noted Reagins “had some successes as GM -- swinging trades for Mark Teixeira and Dan Haren among them.” Most recently, Reagins “worked out a five-year, $85 million contract extension” with P Jered Weaver. But Reagins “also had some big misses” (ESPNLA.com, 9/30).
