Los Angeles Angels Sign Albert Pujols To $254 Million Deal, Also Come To Terms With CJ Wilson

Looks like the odds of the World Series coming back to the American League East just improved with Pujols probability.

Three-time NL MVP Albert Pujols agreed Thursday to a $254 million, 10-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels.

Pujols’ new contract is the second-highest in baseball history and only the third to break the $200 million barrier, following Alex Rodriguez’s $252 million, 10-year deal with Texas before the 2001 season and A-Rod’s $275 million, 10-year contract with the Yankees before the 2008 season.

“This is a monumental day for Angel fans and I could not be more excited,” Angels owner Arte Moreno said.

In addition to the Pujols signing, by far the biggest of the offseason, the Angels agreed to a five-year contract with left-hander C.J. Wilson, a deal worth $77.5 million.

The moves immediately makes the Angels a contender.
