Let's say you're an American League pitcher in 2013 (or, even a NL pitcher considering how many stupid inter-league games are coming this year), how would you like to face this portion of the Angels lineup: Trout, Pujols, Hamilton, Trumbo? Yikes. Well, that's what just happened. The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Orange County, California, United States of America, Earth, Milky Way today signed uber-free-agent Josh Hamilton to a five-year contract. While the Red Sox are trying to figure out why injury-plagued 31-year-old Mike Napoli is not coming down for his press conference close-up, other teams are taking action to make themselves better.
