Ryan, C.J. respond to Angels’ reported interest

Responding to a recent report that the Angels were intensifying their efforts to land C.J. Wilson, and were even starting to look like frontrunners, Rangers president and CEO Nolan Ryan said Tuesday: “I don’t know what to make of that situation. Obviously they’re exploring all their options and enjoying the position they are in. Where that goes, I don’t know.”

Bob Nightengale of USA Today tweeted on Monday night that the Angels “have emerged as favorites” for Wilson. The Halos were reportedly meeting with Wilson’s agent at that point, Day 1 of the Winter Meetings from Dallas, and Jon Morosi of FOXSports.com said via Twitter that the Angels were making a “serious push” to sign him.

Reached by phone on Tuesday by Rangers reporter T.R. Sullivan, though, Wilson sounded like a man who was still feeling out the process.

“As far as I know, the teams that have been interested in me are still interested in me,” said Wilson, adding that Rangers general manager Jon Daniels is expected to have dinner with his agent on Tuesday night. “I don’t know if anything has changed beyond that.”

Great to see teams trying to pick up players from teams in the same division as them. Really makes for a very interesting offseason. Not only are they fighting it out during the season but now during the offseason too.

could it be possible that my Angels and the Rangers are becoming the Yankees and the Red Sox of the American League West?
