I was curious how Matthews jr has hit at the Angels Stadium in the past. Over the last 3 years, in 77 at bats, he has a .633 OPS there. Quite a bit lower than what he produced at Arlington Stadium: .800 something OPS in over 650 at bats. Methinks that the Angels are going to be a tad disappointed.

LA Angels, just paid $50 million for a 32-year old guy that has had one good year in 11 seasons, has been placed on waivers by other teams 3 times, is on his 7th team, has a career .263 BA, 78 career homers.
IThis makes the Tigers signing and extention with Sheffield look better and better.And the Tigers didn't have to give up a draft pick.I think I would rather have Sheff at 41 than Matthews at 37. When the contracts are done. But in todays market if the Angels didn't pay it sombody else would have.He'll help the Angels all the way around.
