Angels Sign Gary Mathews Jr

for 5 years for an enormous $50 million price tag.

Is anyone else here as excited about this signing as I am?  Gary Mathews Jr., a 32 year old one year wonder for 5 years and $50 million.  Or is this some sort of pre-cursor for the Angels unloading some of their young talent to get another power bat?  They talked all of last season about needing a power bat and I don't see Mathews as shoring up this 'hole' in their ball club.  At the very least this signing will improve their horrible defense, but I see it in reality as the Angels pissing away $50 million on a player who had his 'breakout' season last year after having played for 7 teams in the previous 6 seasons.  Holy Toledo. As a side note, the folks over at HH (or at least the Rev) were praying last night that someone swoop in and steal Mathews Jr from Stoneman. Looks as if their Thanksgiving prayers were NOT answered!
