The Angels just recently overspent to sign Twins free agent Torii Hunter, and his agent Larry Reynolds and Angels GM Tony Reagins finalized the deal at a Del Taco.
During Reynolds and Reagins' conversation, Reynolds said he wanted to make sure that the Angels were truly interested. When he found out they were, he and [the Riverside-based] Reagins decided to meet [last] Tuesday afternoon at the Del Taco off the Serfas Club Drive exit off [California Highway] 91.
"I drive the 91 pretty often," said Reagins, who hails from Indio. "Del Taco is one of my favorite fast food chains. I knew that one halfway between Riverside and Anaheim."
If you've never been to Indio, it's labeled as a destination on Interstate 10 East right above the words "other desert cities." It's basically halfway between Los Angeles and Arizona, just west of nowhere. But Del Taco, now that's a restaurant chain I can support. You'd think a taco chain wouldn't be able to make good french fries, but goddam if they don't taste like God's sweat.
Meanwhile, David Wells, Sidney Ponson, and Neifi Perez all support this movement in free agency. They're all gonna sign with Reynolds, on the condition that they get to attend all negotiations.
