The 2012-13 MLB offseason has had its share of surprises.
One of the biggest surprises this offseason was the Los Angeles Angels signing of Josh Hamilton to a five-year, $125 million contract.
Surprising because, it seemed the Angels were relegated to bystander status after spending a combined $317 million on the Albert Pujois and C.J. Wilson contracts during the 2011 offseason.
Surprising because, the Texas Rangers allowed Hamilton to leave the club and join an AL West rival.
That wasn’t the only surprising move this offseason.
