Wow. Trout, Pujols and Hamilton. Could score a few runs if they stay healthy.

The Angels have to turn their attention to the pitching mound now or this signing won't help things like they would like.

Being stationed right outside of LA, I cant wait to go to some Angels games next year. Wow...this is absolutely ridiculous.

Somehow I don't think the Athletics are going to surprise everyone and win this division again next season.

Or the Astros or Mariners. Or Rangers, probably.

I doubt this tops the Correia signing but it's close.

Nice one. I literally just laughed out loud to myself.

The Red Sox have signed Ryan Dempster to a two-year, $26.5 million deal, reports FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

Angels need pitching now. Too bad they can't pry Correia away from the Twins for Trumbo.

TRyan in the signing article on the Twins site, noted having a dozen wins was important and that they had a number of eyes on Correia.

Those eyes ought to find another line of work.

The ESPN article on the signing quotes the Rangers' GM saying that Hamilton didn't -- as the sides previously had agreed -- give the Rangers a chance to meet/exceed the Angels' offer. Kind of interesting.

I've heard the Angels are maybe going to move Trumbo. The Twins should go after him.

According to Buster Olney of ESPN.com, the Angels are telling teams that Mark Trumbo is not available.

The Angels will probably have to get rid of someone in order to clear enough playing time in the outfield for Josh Hamilton, who agreed to a five-year, $125 million free agent contract on Thursday. But Trumbo has exceptional raw power and Anaheim doesn't want to lose that.

Sure. Who do they trade?

This is a huge problem. Twins depth in the org is so bad, they can't make a deal for a slugger like this.

Huh the ESPN article I read said different.
Interesting.

No one wants Vernon Wells and his bloated contract. They'll really have to eat some salary for someone to take him.

Me thinks TEX will be desparate for hitting--especially LH with "some pop". Could be a trade?

Tx will probably chase Swisher now. :o

Let's start the Correia for Trumbo rumors now... heck, we can even throw in Duensing to sweeten it up.
