    Angels to Sign Josh Hamilton! :(

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2012/1...-hamilton.html

    For the second time in as many offseasons, the Angels have signed the top free agent position player to a surprising long-term contract. The Angels have agreed to sign Josh Hamilton to a five-year deal, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports (on Twitter). Moye Sports Associates represents Hamilton, the top free agent position player available.

    Yup

    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels have signed Josh Hamilton to a five-year contract.
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says the deal is worth a total of $125 million. The Halos weren't even mentioned as a potential suitor for Hamilton until a couple of hours ago, though that shouldn't surprise anyone given how last year's Albert Pujols negotiations went down. Anaheim has now landed the top position player on the free agent market two offseasons in a row. Hamilton, who turns 32 years old in May, slugged 43 home runs and tallied 128 RBI this summer for the division-rival Rangers. Dec 13 - 2:23 PM

    I am disgusted, and appalled that this has happened again.This offseason has been quite possibly the worst in Rangers history.

    Words can't even describe how furious I am that this has happened, let alone letting him walk to the Angels.

    If the Rangers do have to start rebuilding, the rebuilding needs to start at the top with Daniels getting the axe. He has no business losing our top free agent every season for 3 straight years.

    This nickel and dime garbage is what has caused us to be on the brink of rebuilding mode.

    A Tiger fan here. what do you think about Fielder for either Profar or Andrus ? You get that power bat at first base.

    This is the final nail in our coffin for this crappy off season way to go JD and Nolan Ryan the most ever attendence the huge television deal coming and being cheap cheap cheap and losing without a doubt the 3 most popular players on the team.I guess the youngsters are going to get to play a bunch and hopefully we can win 80 games this year.What a joke of a off season this has been you two should be really proud of the worst winter that i can remember the Ranger's have had in a very long time.

    I wouldn't be comfortable going over 4 years for Josh. We all know the impact his style of play and checkered past might have had on his body. Its disappointing Josh didn't come down from his 5 year demands, but I'm glad his contract is something the Rangers don't have to worry about it. Yes, now an impact bat becomes a priority, but the Rangers have the pieces to go and get pretty much any available player.

    I wanted Fielder last year. Nobody else did. The Rangers are too cheap to take on his contract, so that won't happen.

    Who needs Josh Hamilton when you can have this for $11m?

    Meh. Everyone knows I didn't want Josh back.

    That said, I wanted an impact something here. As is, we've lost way too much this offseason for "any available player" to just step in and fill their shoes.

    You could sign Swisher, Pierzynski AND Sanchez and still be no better off than what we had at the end of last season when we had Hamilton, Napoli and Dempster on this team (not to mention the relievers like Uehara and Adams).

    That extra year would have been worth it just to keep him away from the Angels. We lost Cliff Lee because we wouldn't go another year. We lost Josh Hamilton because we wouldn't go another year.

    As many of you have said and I am now fully on board. The Rangers are now sitting back with a $3 Billion television contract, charging $40 for ****ing pizza pretzels and selling out Wednesday night games. Their pockets are fat, and they are continuously letting a World Series team fall apart at the stitches.

    I was ok with Lee walking, I was ok with Wilson walking, I was even somewhat ok with Napoli walking...

    Now, I am pissed...

    I'd start looking at Bourne, adds outfield defense and some speed in the lineup. Beyond a trade (Olt or Elvis), there is really not much else out there. Obviously there is a big drop in power, but Bourne's D and SBs would help.
