Well, we have the Angels’ answer.
The Dodgers traded for first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, right-hander Josh Beckett and outfielder Carl Crawford. The Dodgers signed righty Zack Grienke and Ryu Hyun-jin. The Dodgers this, the Dodgers that, and finally Angels owner Arte Moreno said enough.
Does outfielder Josh Hamilton qualify as enough of a response?
The Angels on Thursday reached agreement on a five-year, $125 million free-agent contract with Hamilton, according to major-league sources.
That’s right, Hamilton and Albert Pujols in the same lineup — Hamilton, Pujols and Mike Trout.
