Free agent Josh Hamilton agreed Thursday to a contract with the Los Angeles Angels, a source with direct knowledge of the deal told ESPN Dallas talk show host Ben Rogers.

Hamilton will receive a five-year contract for $25 million per season, the source said.

Hamilton's former team, the Texas Rangers, had been in negotiations to retain the 2010 MVP. Hamilton's camp had also reportedly met with the Mariners at the winter meetings.
Hamilton, 31, has batted .304 in his big-league career, all but 90 games of it in Texas. He has provided big power in the middle of the Rangers' lineup, helping the team to World Series appearances in 2010 and '11.

Hamilton hit .285 with 43 homers and 128 RBIs in an inconsistent 2012 season that didn't finish well; a vision problem caused him to miss five games, he struggled offensively and he had an error in the AL West-deciding loss to Oakland.

Information from ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick and the Associated Press was used in this report.

Trout, Pujols, and Hamilton? Seriously?

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

While it's obviously an awesome lineup - Murderer's Row 2k13 - I'd still be worried about marching out this lineup and still losing 12-9 every other night, because your starting pitching outside Weaver isn't worth a damn. That's obviously an exaggeration, but I felt that they would have been better off using that money to sign Grienke, considering they let Haren walk and traded Santana. I love Tommy Hanson as much as the next guy, but he's got to prove he's over that shoulder before I'll sign off on him. The angels proved it last year that without pitching and a solid bullpen, you're not going to be getting to far in October.



*That aside, it's going to be insane to see the type of offensive production that team is capable of doing when you have a lineup that boasts Pujols, Hamilton and Trumbo and doesn't even mention their best player lol.

I bet they flip Kendrys Morales for pitching. Weaver, Hanson, and Wilson is a solid top 3.

I would rather see Morales than Napoli at 1B.

The pen has already added Madison and Burnett. They will also probably move Bourjos or V. Wells for a SP.
Hansons health is key. The two California teams are now the Yankees spending wise.

The funny part of this move is that more people are paying attention to the cost rather than the fact that the Angels' lineup is absolutely loaded. By the time Hamilton is year 5 of his deal (year 7 for Pujols), young Mike Trout will be all of 25 years old.

BUT DA ANGELS DON'T KNOW!
