In a meeting that was first reported last week, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times hears that C.J. Wilson will dine with Angels manager Mike Scioscia and general manager Jerry Dipoto tonight in Los Angeles.

Dipoto had a three-hour dinner with Wilson’s agent, Bob Garber, last Monday at the general managers’ meetings in Milwaukee, after which he said, “Obviously we have interest, and we’re hoping C.J. feels the same way.”

The Angels have been aggressive in their early efforts to land the free agent left-hander, but we’re still likely a couple weeks away from a resolution. Wilson is scheduled to meet with another MLB general manager this weekend in Los Angeles before visiting two teams on the East Coast next week. Garber has requested a meeting with the Yankees, but it’s not yet known if the Bronx is officially on the itinerary.

    Stay tuned for an update on what everyone had to eat.

      Would it be presumptious of WIlson to order an appetizer without consulting Dipoto?

        Yes it would. Nearly as big of faux pas as using the salad fork to spear a meatball! How josh!

    I only hope he signs with the Angels, because I’m afraid the Yankees will be stupid enough to give 120 mil to a No.3 starter.

      Yeah, would want them to have a 1, 3, 5, and two 7s.

    would be a big signing. Still need to improve the offense though. Maybe Vernon will come through in the even year. Yeah right.

      Highly unlikely

    I’m sure CJ was running up the tab with mad mocktails.

    Seems to me like they’re going for a pitching and defense type thing like the Sox did in ’10…the offense was mediocre, so that would seem like the obvious upgrade, but it looks like he’s going to try and sign Wilson and maybe upgrade the defense to bridge the gap between them and the Rangers.

    I’m assuming Mike Scioscia also brought along Jeff Mathis out of habit, and it just wasn’t deemed important enough to mention.
