Reagins interview w/ the L.A. Times today: "Manny will not be an Angel," Reagins said in his first public comments since the Angels pulled their offer to Teixeira on Sunday. "We're going to give our kids an opportunity to play. We signed [outfielder] Juan Rivera to a three-year deal, and we think, given at-bats, he can be productive player. "With Torii Hunter, Vladimir Guerrero, Gary Matthews Jr., Reggie Willits, our outfield is intact. It will not happen. We are not going to sign Manny Ramirez. End of story." [...] As for why the Angels pulled the plug on their negotiations for Teixeira, Reagins said, ""It became evident, both in words and actions, that our offer wasn't going to get it done, that we wouldn't be able to accomplish a deal, so we had to make a decision. "There comes a point where you have to decide whether you're in or out, and that happened this weekend. We came to the realization this wasn't going to happen and we had to move forward. I'm not going to get into specifics. It just became clear that being an Angel wasn't a priority for that camp." [...] "We had to make an internal decision. We were the buyers. We thought our offer was more than fair. We thought it was competitive. It was probably the fifth-highest [deal] in the history of the game and the largest in the history of our organization. We felt good about our offer." But why pull the offer in such a public fashion, and why now? "Because we have a responsibility to our fans," Reagins said. "I didn't want them to believe we were in the running for Mark when we were not.
