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.
