With Torii Hunter on the verge of signing a $90M deal, you would figure he would pick a restaurant a little bit better than Del Taco. But that's where the Angels negotiated the deal, at the Del Taco off Serfas Club Drive in Corona, right near where yours truly grew up. (Actually, it was a Naugles back then.) And it was Angels G.M. Tony Reagins who picked the spot. Smart, too, considering that Del Taco is an Angels' sponsor.
If Reagins really needed to impress Hunter, he would have picked the Del Taco in Barstow, which is hands down the best DT in the world. Reagins also could have picked Miguel's Jr., which is right down the road but he knew that he would have run the risk is running into one of the DiPaolo or Hetland brothers. And that might have ruined the whole deal.
