The Angels' pursuit of free-agent pitcher C.J. Wilson will continue Monday night when Manager Mike Scioscia and General Manager Jerry Dipoto have dinner with the veteran left-hander in Los Angeles. The meeting was confirmed by a source familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly about it because of the sensitive nature of talks. It is not known whether Arte Moreno would be at the meeting, but the Angels owner has already established a relationship with the Texas Rangers star from bargaining sessions for baseball's new labor agreement, which will be announced Tuesday. Moreno served on the owners' committee, and Wilson was on the players' committee. Dipoto and Bob Garber, Wilson's agent, had a three-hour dinner last Monday night during the GM meetings in Milwaukee.
