    Josh Hamilton to the Angels

    Not that kind of angel. He's dead to me, but he's not dead. He's now an LAA.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.

    Re: Josh Hamilton to the Angels

    Josh Hamilton, Angels agree on five-year, $125 million contract - CBSSports.com

    Not a horrible deal. 5 years is more reasonable than a lot of these things.

    Hamilton, Pujols, Mike Trout.......damn. How can you not want to watch when the Angels are on TV.

    Re: Josh Hamilton to the Angels

    This Angels-Rangers rivalry is fascinating. Garza to Texas for Olt sounds nice right about now.

    Re: Josh Hamilton to the Angels

    Angels are spending there money wrong in my opinion. They won the world series with pitching. Now they are trying to out Yankee the Yankees. They will lose most of there pitching to free agency because they can't afford to sign them.

    I just have a suspicion that Hamilton goes slumping similar to Pujols' performance this year. I also have a suspicion that the Angels don't quite understand the maintenance required for Josh, and am wondering if they've got their chaperones lined up to be with him 24/7. The kid will be right in the middle of every temptation he could find outside of Bangkok.

    Re: Josh Hamilton to the Angels

    If Josh minds his P's and Q's (unlikely) that lineup is insane.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Josh Hamilton to the Angels

    Hamilton in LA spells trouble if you ask me. But if he's healthy and clean, for my money he's the best offensive player in the league. Could have been one of the all time greats if he wouldn't have had his issues. Him and Trout playing next to each other in the outfield is almost unfair.

    Re: Josh Hamilton to the Angels

    This is why they have first, second and third base. You intentionally walk all three.

    It is baseball... Large markets have nearly unlimited cash to spend if they are willing.

    He'll probably play left field. Him, Trout and Hamilton left to right is pretty crazy. 100+ homers probably.

    So do they cut bait on Vernon Wells and Torii Hunter?
