per rotoworld:

Bill Stoneman is stepping down as the Angels' general manager and taking a consultant role with the team.
According to CBS Sportsline, the Angels are leaning towards going with their director of player development, Tony Reagins, as his their successor. Still, it'd be a surprise if they didn't at least check in with Walt Jocketty first. The Angels have reached the postseason four times in the last six years under Stoneman.

Is this all in connection to:
-Arod-Mania 2007?
-Rediculous contract demands of 14 million by Rowand, 18 by Hunter and 20 by Jones?
-They wanna be available when Cashman gets canned for failure of utilizing a 250 million dollar payroll and win a Championship?
-..........?

Very strange off season. General Managers don't get much better some of these guys.

Maybe his successor will finally part with some of their prospects in exchange for a big bat. Frater must be getting excited...

No one wants to be there when the Mitchell Report finally hits?

Has there even been a season where so many successful GM's leave?

Gonna be a crazy off season.

All this GM turnover has got me thinking. Lots of new GMs looking to make a name for themselves and bring a big ticket in. Can Kenny fleece one of these newbies into taking Garland or Contreras or Konerko for a nice ransom. I think he might be able to expose at least one of these new dopes...

Unless Kenny is the dope. I don't think he is, but after last season's moves, I'm skeptical.

Are you suggesting KW got duped last season?

There's only one of those guys I want gone next year, and I don't think anyone here needs me to spell that out. KW's made more great deals than bad deals...That will continue this offseason.

No, I'm suggesting it is my own opinion that I won't get excited about a number of new GMs out there who Kenny might be able to hoodwink. Dupe or no dupe, he didn't have a good offseason last year, I've said that since sometime around May and I hope this year goes much better. I'm just not going to get excited about it.
