So glad Mathis is gone. Iannetta should be a decent stopgap until Conger is ready to start.

Does this mean that when the Angels win the series again you can all take to the streets and chant "We Love Pujols!"?

We've found Santa Claus, and his name is Jerry Dipoto.

Could be a good year for the Halos.

Finally we will have some OFFENSE as well! Very happy with the signing, it's exactly what we needed. Now on to fix the rest of the team, way to go Dipoto!

Edit: just saw on ESPN we got CJ Wilson too... Santa Claus heard the fans wishes I see

I don't follow baseball like I do hockey, but Morales is set to be back this season as well, right?

So We'd havea middle of the order that looks something like
Hunter
Pujols
Morales
Trumbo

Mother of god!

Holy ishhhhhhhh !!! We got "da Mah-cheen"!

Recall our previous GM, Tony Reagins, and his inability to land any player worthwhile. Like last year we missed out on OF Crawford and 3B Adrian Beltre. He also traded away Napoli; knowing full well the Rangers would end up trading for Nap!

Here comes new GM DiPoto. We needed to upgrade our 'on base percentage' (OBP) and bullpen help (lefties a plus). So he starts off by trading for a better offensive catcher (Iannetta) for top pitching prospect. Then gets rid of offensive, inept C Mathis for LHP Mills. There was another bullpen signing for pennies, LaTroy Hawkins.

Just when you think the Angels are just filling in small pieces... then BOOM! They land top 2 talents in Pujols AND LHP Wilson!!!! OMFG! We got an all-star for a decade and a southpaw Ace for five years! And get this, Wilson signed for only $75 mil (as opposed to the proposed $100 mil rumors).

Talk about a starting rotation of Weaver, Haren, Wilson, and Santana. I don't think anyone really cares who the fifth starter is! Also, the hitting problem was also addressed with Pujols and Iannetta. That only leaves getting a competent closer.

*** I still think the Angels need another big bat at 3B. Either convert Trumbo at 3B, or trade Trumbo or Morales or both for a 3B. Better yet, trade away Abreu and Have Trumbo DH, then also trade Wells and put Morales/Trumbo in LF. Oh my what a wonderful problem to have! ***

Just get Vernon wells the **** out of there for Trout and I'm very happy with that lineup! Though, I'd really like to see what Morales can still do.

I'd like to see if he's still garbage first. He pretty much hit "Napoli on the Angels type" numbers but probably had more rally killing outs. It'll all be sorted out in the spring though.

--------------------------------------------

Also according to ESPN, Angels are telling teams that they aren't trading anyone and Trumbo will be tested at 3B.
