Angels Snag Pujols, Wilson
The Los Angeles have added two of the most prized free agents this off season on Thursday: Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Pujols was signed to a 10-year deal reportedly worth $254 million, while LA also inked Wilson to a deal estimated to worth $77.5 million over five years.
Pujols and Wilson will be fighting for a World Series ring after competing against one-another in this past season’s fall classic, playing for the Cardinals and Rangers, respectively. St. Louis won the series 4-3.
