Pick your poison: Weaver, Haren or Santana.

But now, pick another poison.

According to Jon Heyman's Twitter, the Angels have agreed to a five-year, $75 million deal with former Rangers ace C.J. Wilson.

The lefty is a Christmas bow that completes a foursome in Anaheim as dominate as anyone in the league.

Tack on the recent Albert Pujols signing and this winter is quite a fat spread under the sunny Anaheim Christmas tree.

It makes you wonder how much the Angels have a bone to pick with Texas, who last year in a makeshift deal with Toronto, stole former starting star catcher Mike Napoli.

The Angels are now the deepest team in baseball with as much of a shot at a World Series as anyone.

Wilson gives the Halos a gift of a fourth starter. His 16-7 record with a 2.94 ERA is good enough to be a franchise ace anywhere else.

A Newport Beach native, Wilson now gets to enjoy the weather he long loved growing up. Which makes you wonder how much his decision was based solely on that.
