What a great day for Angels fans. The team locked up Albert Pujols for ten years at around $260 million and then they turn around and pick up C.J. Wilson to a five year, $77.5 million deal. So the Angels now have the best hitter in baseball and probably the top free agent pitcher to go along with Jered Weaver who’s probably the second best pitcher in the American League.
That is a lot of money though. They’re still on the hook for Vernon Wells but this is what you can do if you have an owner with deep pockets. The Angels were right there in the final week and now they probably have a better team then the Rangers do for the time being.
This does give the Angels one to many first baseman though although I guess having too many sluggers is a luxury that a lot of teams don’t have. I’m really looking forward to this 2012 season.
