    Correction: $125 mill. Please edit my title.

    Let's see if they can even make the playoffs this time.

    It's not just those three, the rest of their lineup is pretty stacked too. They should be heavy favorites in the division and also getting through the AL to the WS.

    Yep it will now be a HUGE fail if they don't win at least 2 championships. One won't do it considering how much they're trying to go all in.

    I don't follow MLB as well as I like, but why couldn't they get in the playoffs after getting Pujols and Wilson?

    I get this picture the Angels stockpile on stars like the Redskins for many years, yet can't get them to play as a team.

    I am glad we didnt give him 5/125 million.I was really tired of his antics towards the end of the season,let the angels worry about him and babysit him now.

    Their starting pitching fell apart at the end of the season and they didn't have a bullpen either. They stock up on big name bats and lack pitching and batting depth. The MLB is complex. There's no sure fire way to build a winning team.

    i didnt like his attitude either ... kinda glad we didnt get him. But im very upset with Jon Daniels "Plan" this offseason. He has struck out 4 times already. Greinke, Hamilton, Upton and Shields. He had shots at all of them and has crapped the bed. Its making me wonder if Jerry Jones or Mark Cuban is actually the GM of the rangers

    They can get to the playoffs with those guys. Can they win? That depends on pitching and how much they can afford to keep after signing all these guys.

    Can't wait for the wheels to come off both LA teams with those back roll salaries.

    I think one world title would be enough for the Angels fans to be happy with this move.

    Judging by his press conference, looks like Hamilton really hated it here. I bet he was plotting to get out since July

    They held his hand long enough..if he didn't want to be with the Rangers anymore fine.

    Now he can pay a few million extra in taxes & they can worry about keeping him sober & right.

    It's not like there won't be teams who will have spent a ton and failed to win 1 over the next few years.

    Winning a championship is what they made all those moves for but I don't think you can say they have to win more than that or else it's a failure.

    5 years from now I'm sure all involved will gladly take a single championship with the moves they have made as opposed to no championship and half the moves.

    Josh and his wife are angry at the Rangers because they didn't just throw the bank at them immediately? :lmao2:

    Josh just can't see his own warts.

    I wonder how Josh is going to handle all the clubs, drugs, drinking, celebrities and everything else that he will have on his plate out in LA. If he is going into trouble in Dallas and Arizona, I can only imagine the trouble he will find in LA.
