I will always remember him as the mastermind that pulled off the greatest trade of all time, Vernon Wells for Mike Napoli, Juan Rivera, and 85 million problems.

Now where are teams going to send their way overpriced, underperforming players? :(

This smells of him possibly going to the Cubs??? Just wondering....considering they have a lot of dead weight that needs to be cut from their roster.

Tony Reagins doesnt know how to handle the pressure of being a GM...thats what the Vernon Wells debacle was about...the "We have to improve" speech came up, so he tried to improve, and it cost the team 86 million for a player with one of the worst contracts in baseball.

Their team DID improve, they were a mere 80-82 last year, and this year they won 6 more games. Unfortuantely when youre spending nearly 130 million on payroll, you better make it to the postseason.

Well said. He made the Wells move in a panic.

And yes, we improved a bit, but not nearly enough.

I'm surprised nobody brought that up yet, but I thought it was pretty well known that the Angels are run by Moreno ans Scioscia(sp?) and Reagins' word doesn't carry much weight.

Won't be missed, unfortunately he'll be back in baseball soon.
