Holy Angels – Los Angeles reportedly sign CJ Wilson









Just moments after landing the biggest free agent in 2011, in Albert Pujols, The Los Angeles Angels have signed starting pitcher CJ Wilson and will pay him somewhere between $75 million and $77 million over 5 years.

Wilson, the ace on a Texas Rangers side that made 2 straight World Series, was apparently deciding between the Miami Marlins and LA. You have to expect the Pujols signing to have been a major factor in the final decision.

He joins a staff that already boosts Jered Weaver, Dan Haren and Ervin Santana, although you can expect one, likely Santana, to be traded.

Wilson went 16-7 with a 2.94 ERA in 2011.
