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..?).

Are the Rangers in trouble?

I was thinking the same thing.

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.

Meh, I keep Floyd over a faster Gordon Beckham.

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.

Or more importantly, the Tigers.

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.

The Astros might lose 130 games.

So that's 32-130? That's ludicrous. With their best prospects coming up they could lose less that 100.

That'll be a scary, scary lineup (if Hamilton can stay healthy).

25 million a year doesn't surprise me, but the 5 year contract does.

Wow. I feel bad for the Rangers. Their window might have just shut. I'm wondering if choking away the West and then losing the Wild Card Game had to do with Hamilton jumping ship. Great day to be an Angels fan though.
