Reagins feels positive leaving Nashville: The Angels departed the Winter Meetings having watched the big fish, Miguel Cabrera, get away, becoming the latest Tiger in Detroit's loaded offensive tank.

Halos not making big splash at Meetings: Angels general manager Tony Reagins remained upbeat on Wednesday even though he was unable to reel in Florida's Miguel Cabrera after days of pursuit, seeing him head to the Tigers instead.

Angels owner: Report will name names:
Angels owner Arte Moreno said Wednesday the report on the use of performance-enhancing drugs in Major League Baseball will include names of players."The names of players will come out that people will be mad about,"Moreno, quoted by theLos Angeles Timesin Thursday's editions, said."Some of my information is second-hand, but I know there's going to be names."Moreno did not elaborate as to why he felt players, fans, management officials and others would be angered by the identity of any names that come from the report.The subject came up after the Angels held a news conference to introduce center fielder Torii Hunter, who was signed last week to a $90 million free-agent contract, and right-hander Jon Garland, who was acquired from the White Sox.Moreno did not say how he came upon such information. He told theTimeshe has urged commissioner Bud Selig's office to be"proactive"in ridding the sport of banned substances."Anyone who tries to cheat the system shouldn't be in baseball,"Moreno said."If you've got dirty laundry, get it out there and get rid of it."Reyes untouchableThe Mets need pitching and they'd love to land Johan Santana. Not enough to trade star shortstop Jose Reyes, though."Jose Reyes is one of our core players,"general manager Omar Minaya said Thursday."I don't see us trading Jose Reyes for one of those guys being mentioned. It just doesn't make sense for us."The Minnesota Twins are listening to trade offers for Santana, a two-time Cy Young Award winner who can become a free agent after next season.The Mets are one of several big-budget teams thought to be interested, including the Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers and Angels.The Mets think they might have a package of prospects that could bring back a top starting pitcher, but Minnesota may want the 24-year-old Reyes included in any potential deal for Santana.Bonds movieHBO Films is planning to turn a best-selling book about Barry Bonds'alleged steroid use and the government's wide-ranging probe into performance-enhancing drug use in sports into a movie, one of the book's authors said Thursday.Lance Williams, a reporter at theSan Francisco Chronicle, said that Ron Shelton has been tapped to direct the flick and will co-write the script withTin Cuppartner John Norville once the Hollywood writers strike is settled.The planned movie based on the bookGame of Shadowswas first reported Wednesday byVariety.Williams co-wrote the book with sports writer Mark Fainaru-Wada, who recently left theChronicleto join ESPN.Much of the book was based on secret grand jury testimony of Bonds and others leaked to them by Troy Ellerman, a disbarred attorney sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for denying under oath he was the reporters'source.The book recounts how Bonds allegedly began using steroids in 1999 after becoming jealous of Mark McGwire setting Major League Baseball's single-season home run mark the previous season.Briefly

It might be a new uniform, but it's the same old Torii: Torii Hunter had a news conference with the Los Angeles Angels even before completing his contract. Hunter was introduced Wednesday along with starting pitcher Jon Garland, acquired this month in a trade with the Chicago White Sox. A seven-time Gold Glove center fielder with the Twins, Hunter reached a preliminary agreement Nov. 21 on a $90 million, five-year contract with the Angels but has yet to finalize the deal. Hunter hammed it up Wednesday with a rally monkey given to him by an Angels staffer, keeping the stuffed animal on his shoulder as he answered questions. "I thoug
Even with Hunter, Angels seek Cabrera? (AP):
Unsure whether his team could work out a trade for Miguel Cabrera, Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno didn't waste time when new general manager Tony Reagins suggested they try to add offense by signing Torii Hunter. "Obviously, we've been negotiating the Cabrera deal, and we have not been able to consummate that deal.
What Others Are Saying about the Twins: Glut of outfielders, pitchers The signing of Torii Hunter and the trade for Jon Garland earlier this week give the Angels a glut of outfielders (Hunter, Garret Anderson, Gary Matthews Jr., Vladimir Guerrero, Reggie Willits and Juan Rivera as well as multi-position player Chone Figgins) and starting pitchers (John Lackey, Kelvim Escobar, Jered Weaver, Ervin Santana, Joe Saunders and Garland) from which they could work additional trades. But trading the kind of low-cost, young players being sought for another high-salaried player such as Florida Marlins third baseman Miguel Cabrera or Baltimor
Notes: Cabrera ready for life in Chicago: Cabrera sounded like a veteran ready to take a leadership spot in Chicago during Tuesday's conference call, and one who would be near the top of Ozzie Guillen's batting order. The shortstop was acquired Monday from the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for starting pitcher Jon Garland

Cards' grocery list must address 'pot-luck pitching': The Cardinals probably will counter a weak free agent market by inquiring about pitchers in their last year before free agency, such as the Florida Marlins' Dontrelle Willis or the Chicago White Sox's Jon Garland. Former American League Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana also fits the description. Another White Sox arm, Jose Contreras, is available with two years and $20 million remaining on his contract.
Cardinals payroll experiencing growing pains?: With the Cardinals needing to move money off next season, free agency offers the appeal of back-loading contracts. The trade market may offer players such as Atlanta Braves shortstop Edgar Renteria or Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Jon Garland.
Reliable ace halts Twins' slide: CHICAGO - Johan Santana's chances of winning a third Cy Young Award this season faded about the same time the Twins faded from the playoff picture. It's an individual award, but these things often work hand in hand.

Jason Kubel delivered a pair of two-out hits against Chicago starter Jon Garland -- a run-scoring single in the third inning and a three-run homer in the fifth -- and Santan

Notes: Garland still feels club is solid: When the White Sox struggled during Spring Training, with the starting pitching standing out as the primary culprit, Jon Garland stood boldly in the corner of his team. White Sox got out of the gate in April at a less than rapid pace, the right-hander still believed his group was the one to beat in the American League.
Baker, Twins cook up easy win: The second half of the 2007 season certainly started better for the White Sox than the first half. Behind a 15-hit attack and strong pitching from Jon Garland over seven innings, the White Sox cruised to a 9-7 victory over Baltimore.
