Default Hamilton to the Angels

5 years 125 mil

Trout-Pujols-Hamilton one of the best 3-4-5 ever (or 2-3-4?)

Wow these LA teams are spending like Crazy. Trout, Pujols, Hamilton, Trumbo, Morales is a scary scary lineup. Glad the Sox don't face them 18 times a year

White Sox Twist: I wonder if there'll be any discussions about Bourjos now. I'd love to make a run at him (for Floyd..?).

Agreed. It's not out of the realm of possibility they would have interest in Floyd after losing some pitching depth with Grienke and Santana. Back to the thread topic though...mercy, what a lineup the Angels are going to have.

It looks like a great lineup but this could go South pretty quick.

-Pujols isn't the same player, his ops has gone down each of last three years so he probably is on a decline and he's at the age where this starts to happen.
-Hamilton was pretty inconsistent during the 2nd half last year and he is injury prone.
Trout should be good and should adjust well but the scouts did catch up to him at the end last year so I find it hard to believe he can repeat last year.

Wow. Amazing what TV money can do for a franchise isn't it?

At least he's not with the Yankees or Red Sox. I have nothing against the Angels, never had.

Incredible (on paper) lineup.

Players don't just bottom out. Not to mention his line was still awesome. I'm not sure how he isn't the same player. Not to mention he didn't hit his first homer until May. I think he was pressing a lot last year because of that monster contract. I'll be he's closer to his "normal" numbers next year.

MLB TV was talking about the fact that he might be dealt for starting pitching.

IS Bourjos really worth much starting pitching? He had a nice year in 2011, but in 2012 and 2010 he was crap.

Yeah, and still finished with a better record than the team that won our division
