Watching the Angels game and seeing how crappy Josh Hamilton is now. Makes me laugh that several people in here wanted to pay him $175 million dollars. Pagan was a bad signing for 4 years but at least the Giants arent stuck with Hamiltons contract.
Between Hamilton and Pujols, theyve wasted a historic amount of money on 2 players. Pujols is limping around like hes in the final year of his contract, not the 2nd. I have NO idea what the Angels were thinking. It was so obvious that they were both past their primes heading into free agency. To give them 365 mil over the next 5-10 years in insane.
The worst part is theyre going to have those 2 enormous money pit contracts on their payroll for the next decade, so they arent going to have the extra cash to build a team around Mike Trout, who could be the premier player of his generation.
The Dodgers being 8.5 games out of 1st place, and the Angels being 9 games out with a combined 360 million dollar payroll is highly enjoyable.
