The Angels may be unwilling to meet C.J. Wilson's initial asking price, but that hasn't dampened their aggressive pursuit of the free-agent left-hander, which continued at the winter meetings Monday. Asked whether he would be hesitant to give a free-agent pitcher more than the five-year, $85-million deal Angels ace Jered Weaver signed in August, General Manager Jerry Dipoto said, "It would certainly create some hesitancy." Wilson is reportedly seeking a deal of at least $100 million. But Dipoto was also unfazed by another report that Wilson had received a six-year offer, one that was subsequently tied to, and denied by, the Washington Nationals.
