General manager Tony Reagins confirms the offer of a contract, whose value could almost double the previous club record of $90 million given to Torii Hunter last year.



The Angels have offered an eight-year contract to Mark Teixeira, general manager Tony Reagins said Friday night.


The contract would be the longest and richest in club history. The value could almost double the previous club record, the $90 million guaranteed last year to Torii Hunter.


Reagins declined to provide the value of Teixeira's offer. The Angels are believed to have offered at least $160 million, matching or exceeding the highest offer so far reported for Teixeira.


Owner Arte Moreno flew from his Arizona home to Las Vegas on Tuesday and met personally with Scott Boras, the agent for Teixeira. Angels spokesman Tim Mead said he believed Moreno presented the offer to Boras at that time. Mead also said he did not know when the offer might expire.


None of the other teams in the Teixeira sweepstakes -- the Boston Red Sox, Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals -- has been reported to have offered more than eight years. The Nationals reportedly have bid $160 million over eight years, the Orioles between $140 million and $150 million over seven years. The details of the Boston bid have not been reported.



The Angels had exclusive negotiating rights with Teixeira for the first 15 days after the World Series, but they declined to make an offer during that time and said they would do so at an appropriate time. Boras has had one month since then to solicit bids from other teams, enabling him to let Moreno know how the market had developed and enabling Moreno to make his first -- and perhaps only -- offer without Boras shopping that offer to other teams.


The Angels have not wavered from treating Teixeira as their top priority, even as other coveted options have evaporated. The Angels negotiated with pitcher CC Sabathia, a favorite among their scouts, but they chose not to make an offer after deciding they would not match the New York Yankees' initial $140-million bid. Sabathia agreed to a seven-year, $161-million deal with the Yankees late Tuesday night, hours after Moreno met with Boras.


On Friday, outfielder Raul Ibanez signed a three-year, $31.5-million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. The Angels had considered signing Ibanez if they lost out on Teixeira, with Ibanez playing left field and Kendry Morales replacing Teixeira at first base.


The Angels' eight-year offer first was reported Friday night on the team-owned radio station, AM 830.

Think of all the problems Scioscia had with Jose Guillen. There's no way he would want to deal with Manny. And if Tex accepts the offer, there's no way Reigans will throw another $70 million at Ramirez. Not when there are other pressing needs.

I agree. We need another relief pitcher. One of the solutions to left field might be to trade for a 3rd baseman (there seems to be a lot on the trading block) and moving Figgins out to left.

While missing half the season due to injury and hitting .125 in the playoffs while leavine 15 men on base. I think they should look to move him now while he still has good value.

Mostly everyone struggled hitting in that series, He is injury prone but we should see if he can play 1 healthy season. Sean Rodriguez hit under .200 in the regular season i don't think he will ever be near or close to Kendrick.

But I remember Kendrick botching a couple of key groundballs against Boston as well. I'm not saying Rodriguez is the answer, but I've lost all faith in Kendrick. And I used to be a huge fan of his.

Angels Are Fuentes' 'First Choice'
By Ben Nicholson-Smith [December 13, 2008 at 12:37pm CST]
According to James Burns of the Merced Sun-Star, Brian Fuentes said the Angels are his "first choice." "Anaheim would be a great fit, being a California kid," Fuentes told Burns. Fuentes goes on to say that he's not worried to see fewer suitors out there, now that Francisco Rodriguez and Kerry Wood have signed. Instead, he said it's a good thing, especially since he sees himself as "the last top-end closer left." The Angels, Brewers, Tigers and Cardinals could all pursue Fuentes.

I don't think he is one of our main priorities since we are set with Jose as our closer but if can take a lesser deal to sign with us that would be great.

What's the deal with Abreu?


The Cubs, Rays, Dodgers and Angels are among teams that have expressed interest in star free-agent outfielder Bobby Abreu.
