With Thursday's signings of first baseman Albert Pujols and starting pitcher C.J. Wilson, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have stacked their lineup.

Pujols' deal is for 10 years, between $250 million and $260 million and includes a full no-trade clause.

Wilson's deal is for five years, $77.5 million and does not contain a no-trade clause.

Angels owner Arte Moreno summed up the transactions thusly: "This is a monumental day for Angel fans, and I could not be more excited."

Added rookie GM Jerry Dipoto, "Many players around baseball desire to come play for the Angels."

This clearly must be true if both Wilson and Pujols downed more lucrative offers from the Miami Marlins just for the chance to play ball in Anaheim.

With the addition of these two stars, the Angels are in prime position to have a great 2012 season.

But to make it even more spectacular, they will have to add some pieces and trade away starting pitcher Dan Haren.
