Baseball: Hamilton signs with Angels?

http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/l...t-stove-121312

The Los Angeles Angels are in agreement on a five-year contract with free agent outfielder Josh Hamilton, major-league sources told FOXSports.com.

HOT STOVE

Our experts bring you all latest offseason news. Read MLB Buzz.


Joe McDonnell of FOX Sports West first reported the sides were in serious talks Thursday, as the Angels are shocked the baseball industry by signing away a superstar from the rival Texas Rangers.
Hamilton becomes the second elite hitter to join Angels in as many offseasons. Albert Pujols left the Cardinals to sign a 10-year, $240 million deal with the Angels a little more than one year ago.
The next question is how the Angels would arrange their lineup around Hamilton. If Hamilton plays left field alongside phenom Mike Trout, the Angels would need to move Mark Trumbo to third base or right field. If Trumbo stays in the outfield, that would mean reduced playing time for Vernon Wells and Peter Bourjos.
Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto also could trade designated hitter Kendrys Morales to open up DH at-bats for Wells and Hamilton.
One way or another, the Angels are responding to their third-place disappointment of 2012 with one of the more startling moves in recent baseball history.

That is a scary lineup.

So does this mean that David Glass will enjoy the benefits of some "luxury tax" dividends, or do they still have that?

They do. He earns about 40m of his 160m in total revenues via the welfare state. Er, "revenue sharing"

Maybe with this signing they'll actually make the playoffs next year. Or they could become the MLB's version of the Lakers.

Cool, maybe he can afford getting the payroll to 80+ this season.

If he did that then he wouldn't get money anymore. He had it up to $72 a few years ago and did a salary dump.

Just for correction, it was up around 75-80 million for a couple years in the 2009-2010 range, and it wasn't really a salary dump as much as losing Jose Guillen and Gil Meche's contracts. That was a third of the payroll right there. With this offseason's moves so far the current payroll will mostly like be around 80 million.

Either way, there's actually a pretty good list of teams who have made the playoffs with a lower payroll than the Royals the last 6-7 years. There's no excuse.

Carlota will be here shortly to excoriate me for once again accusing Arte Moreno of having to go out and buy a new shiny bauble to keep the shitty Angels fans paying attention.

And they'll do it again next year, and the year after, and the year after. This is what Arte has to do out there to keep from fading into obscurity. The team has the most electric ballplayer in baseball on it (here's a hint: it's not the aging 1b) and yet Moreno had no choice but to make this move to keep from just disappearing from the LA papers altogether.

Look at the shiny thing, Carlota! Here it is, girl! Here it is! Good girl....
