Ex-Angels GM Buzzie Bavasi Passes

Can't believe this hasn't been posted, but former Angels GM Buzzie Bavasi passed away at the age of 93 today, according to the AP. Bavasi ran the ship from 1978-1984, the Halos' first heyday when they won the the AL West in 1979 and 1982. I always get the sense reading about him that he never really understood free agency, and it hurt him while he was running the Angels in that era.

More at MLB.com and the Seattle Press-Intelligencer blog, which has a mini-bio of him from the perspective of son Bill, currently the M's GM.
