A year after the Los Angeles Angels seemingly came out of nowhere and swooped up Albert Pujols, they have done it again. Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports reported that the Angels have signed Josh Hamilton to a five-year, $125 million contract.
This massive deal raises the expectations for the Los Angeles Angels even higher. The team missed out on the postseason last year after all of its spending, and after this move, it should be considered the favorites to win the American League West, and possibly the World Series as well.
Hamilton's tenure in Los Angeles will certainly have some ups and downs, but the Angels are expecting big things out of him. This signing will have a massive impact on the franchise moving forward.
