BASEBALL EXTRA | ANGEL REPORT

Notes

September 12, 1997|JOHN WEYLER

General Manager Bill Bavasi and Doug DeCinces, advisor to the Angels' first-round pick, UCLA infielder Troy Glaus, met for the first time in more than a month Wednesday night. The Angels have offered Glaus, the third player chosen overall, $1.9 million to sign. If he attends the first day of classes at UCLA on Sept. 22, the Angels lose rights to him.

Tony Phillips realizes he's probably down to his final 16 games in an Angel uniform, but even though his future figures to be elsewhere, it doesn't make losing any easier. It's especially tough when you score 10 runs and lose one day (12-10) and then give up only two and lose again (2-0) the next.

"It's not life and death, but it really seems like it sometimes," Phillips said. "We lost two games in Toronto we should've won, but that's the way it is in baseball and life. No matter how hard you try, you don't always get the results you're after."

Phillips has at least one hit in 18 of 19 games since an arbitration panel reinstated him Aug. 20--the Angels suspended him after his arrest for cocaine possession--but he was out taking early batting practice Thursday afternoon.
