WTF. This is astonishing.

angels to sign albert pujols
by tim dierkes [december 8, 2011 at 8:56am cst]
the angels are the bridesmaid no more. Albert pujols will sign with the angels for ten years and $250-260mm, tweets yahoo's tim brown. He'll receive a full no-trade clause. Pujols decided this morning, writes brown. If pujols received more than $252mm, his new deal will be the second-largest in baseball history in both its total and average annual value.

Lefty C.J. Wilson will join Albert Pujols in Los Angeles, as the Angels continue a surprising free agent spending spree. The Halos completed a deal with Wilson today, an executive who spoke to the team told Joel Sherman of the New York Post.
The AL West will be very interesting.

Really odd... completely unexpected. I'm not disappointed in losing out in Pujols but really annoyed about Wilson. We could've had one nasty rotation. Hopefully the Marlins push hard at a Wandy Rodriguez or a Roy Oswalt.

At least Cardinals fans can quit force feeding us that he's a "class act." He took the money and ran, like everyone else in the league.

325m committed between two players in a matter of a few hours. Dropping bombs over there in LA...

Anyways... at least I can rid the suspicion of Pujols using the Marlins to up St. Louis's offer. Or... did he just fail and then the Marlins backed out?

I don't know about that, but there's a Pujols backlash in St. Louis. I guarantee that a ton of Cardinals' fans knee-jerk reactions this morning were "FUCK PUJOLS!"
