Biggest Winners and Losers of Josh Hamilton's Big Los Angeles Angels Deal
Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Oh, those tricky Los Angeles Angels. They've done it again.

A year after shocking the world by signing Albert Pujols to a monster free-agent contract, the Angels have agreed to sign former AL MVP Josh Hamilton, the top slugger on this year's market. 

According to ESPNDallas.com, Hamilton's deal is for five years and $125 million. For that, the Angels are getting a guy who just hit a career-high 43 home runs with a .930 OPS.

The Angels now have the makings of one of the league's best offenses. Hamilton and Pujols will form an impressive middle-of-the-order duo, and both of them should enjoy hitting behind young stud Mike Trout.

Presumably, the Angels are very happy with this deal. But as with every major free-agent signing, there are just as many not-so-happy folks as there are happy folks.

Here's a look at the winners and losers of the Hamilton signing.
