Angels Notes: Reagins, Scioscia, Matsui

Let's take a look at some Angels-related tidbits..

  • Angels GM Tony Reagins blames himself for the team's underachievement this year, writes Kevin Baxter of the Los Angeles Times.  Reagins says that he will evaluate the club from the top to the bottom in an effort to turn things around this winter.  He also stood behind his acquisition of Dan Haren, saying that the pitcher will help the club beyond this season.  Haren's contracts calls for him to earn $25.5MM in the next two seasons and has a $15.5MM club option ($3.5MM buyout) for 2013.
  • Meanwhile, Halos skipper Mike Scioscia says that the club needs only minor changes, and not a complete overhaul, heading into 2011, according to's Evan Drellich.  Scioscia believes that the return of missing pieces from this year such as Kendry Morales will provide a major spark for the Angels next season.
  • Scioscia would not go into depth about next season's plans and would not directly address the potential return of Hideki Matsui.  The veteran, who has hit .268/.358/.448 with 19 homers in 2010, will be a free agent after the season.
