Looks like you guys are getting him. Congrats!

EPSN Radio 710 AM, the Angels' flagship station, reported on the air late Saturday night that the free-agent slugger has agreed to go to Anaheim. The New York Daily News, citing unnamed sources, reported the same on its Web site, adding that "Indications were that the deal was for five years and a guaranteed $70 million."

Club spokesman Tim Mead would not comment on the reports.

Earlier Saturday, the Mets, who had a contract offer out to Guerrero, dropped out of the race when the outfielder turned down a deal that would have guaranteed him $30 million over three seasons while possibly earning him $71 million over five years. In addition, the Orioles had a five-year, $65 million offer on the table for almost a month.

If the Angels do sign Guerrero, they will likely move center fielder Darin Erstad to first base. New Angel Jose Guillen would probably play left field, with Garret Anderson moving from left to center and Guerrero playing right.

I've got Vlad in a keeper league and I'm pleased that he landed with the Angels. :-)

Good move for the Angels as well. I've had them favored to win the West for a few weeks now. Adding Vlad certainly helps. :-)
