Gary Matthews Jr to the Angels

Postby Dannomyte » Wed Nov 22, 2006 2:46 pm

In yet another eye-popping free-agent signing, the Angels have reached agreement with center fielder Gary Matthews Jr. on a five-year, $50 million contract, FOXSports.com has learned.

The 32-year-old Matthews, who still must pass a physical, is coming off a breakout season in which he batted .313 with 19 homers and 79 RBIs and played stellar defense for the Rangers.

This is insane, what is going on with MLB? we may all look back on the free agent class of 2007 as the ones that ruined the sport, if it isn't ruined already.

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.

I think he was on the Braves also, but we cut him in Spring Training a while back.
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.
