    Angels sign Pujols!?!?!

    Normally I would just put this in the "Hot Stove" thread, but this is HUGE.

    Sources -- Albert Pujols takes 10-year deal from Los Angeles Angels - ESPN Los Angeles

    DALLAS -- Albert Pujols has agreed to a 10-year deal for at least $250 million with the Los Angeles Angels, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney on Thursday.

    The deal includes a full no-trade clause, which Pujols had been seeking and may have been a sticking point in his negotiations with the Miami Marlins.

    Pujols had turned down an offer from the Cardinals, the only team he has ever played for, about a year ago, but St. Louis was still in the bidding as of Wednesday.

    Pujols is a three-time MVP who batted .299 with 37 homers and 99 RBIs in 2011, the only season in his 11-year career that he didn't have 100 RBIs or hit better than .300. But the 31-year-old did battle an arm injury.

    Sources told ESPN.com's Jayson Stark that the Angels jumped into the bidding late Wednesday.

    The Marlins moved on to pursue free agent pitchers Mark Buehrle (who agreed to terms Wednesday, pending a physical) and C.J. Wilson. But despite the Marlins' exit from the bidding Wednesday night, sources said negotiations with the Cardinals hadn't progressed to the point where Pujols was close to agreeing to a deal.

    That is indeed news.

    A switch over to the American League. A bit of good news for a Cubs fan.

    Where's Barry? He would normally break this news.

    What!?!?!

    The Angels need help a lot more at third than they need at first. I just hope this isn't another case of getting a big bat that duds at the plate once they get them. How many times has that happened. Although if this happens yet again I think it may finally be time to let Hatcher go.

    I don't think of Albert as "Help" at first base. He "IS" first base.

    When Angel fans start paying Yankee and Red Sox Ticket prices, we shall see how happy they all are.

    Not going to happen.

    They'll be happy, and their prices will never be Yankee prices.
