Just a little later I got a reply back from him
"Daniel: Thanks so much for your thoughts. I greatly appreciate your kind words. It was good to see the Dodgers have an improved season. I think the organization is getting back on the right track. And, as you know, I'm thrilled that the Angels are in the playoffs with the help of some guys from our organization--Scioscia, Hatcher, Griffin and Roeincke. Fred Claire"
That is all.
