According to reports, Josh Hamilton has agreed to a 5-year deal with the Los Angeles Angels for $125 Million. I feel the Angels had to do something with all the moves the Dodgers have been doing since their new ownership took over. Also the Angels farm system may be the worst in baseball. Throwing money around is the only thing they can do.
Although the rumor was the Rangers wouldn’t go more than four years. Jon Daniels told local reporters that Josh Hamilton and his agent did not give Texas an opportunity to match the Angels’ offer.
This is in spite of all kinds of reports that that’s what Hamilton and the Rangers had agreed on for months.
Hamilton (career) at Angel Stadium: .260/.325/.440 with 5 homers in 166 PAs
The last two offseasons have seen the Angels sign pitcher C.J. Wilson last year and now Hamilton from the Rangers.
