From Mlb.com: "The Angels landed a centerpiece for their holiday table with the addition of free agent Gary Matthews Jr. on Wednesday.
Matthews agreed to a five-year, $50 million deal that includes a partial no-trade clause, according to an industry source. The deal is pending a physical. "
I knew the Angels would do something stupid like signing someone who just had a carreer year, which was nowhere near his regular season numbers, sure he is a great defender, and will probably be good this year, but he'll decline fast.
Now with this and all the other crazy signings, Kotsay value is through the roof, who is in centerfield in Cincinatti? Griffey?, maybe Kotsay and some mid level prospect for Dunn?
