The Angels' front office made more offseason noise by far than any other team in the MLB. When Albert Pujols signed on Anaheim's dotted line, it signified possibly the biggest free-agent signing in the Angels' history.
As if signing Pujols wasn't enough of a statement, the Angels went out and picked up former Texas starter CJ Wilson. The acquisition of Wilson gives the Angels a core of four starters (Wilson, Dan Haren, Jered Weaver and Ervin Santana) that is certainly in the running for the best quartet of arms in the majors.
Despite an aging lineup, Angels fans have a reason to be excited this season. While Torii Hunter and Bobby Abreu may be past their prime, they are not yet ready to be put out to pasture and still have some heavy swinging power. Kendry Morales should return to the Angels' starting lineup this spring after breaking his leg in possibly the most ridiculous sports injury in recent memory (except, of course, for this).
The Angels are ready to play. Their only problem could be that while they are a stacked squad, they may not even be the strongest team in the AL West.
