Dec. 13 -- Josh Hamilton strikes 5-year, $125 million deal with Angels

After spending the past five years with the Texas Rangers, perennial All Star Josh Hamilton signed a five-year, $125 million deal with Texas' AL West rival the Los Angeles Angels. It was the second year in a row that the Angels had signed a former MVP slugger, with Hamilton joining Albert Pujols on Los Angeles' lineup. The big-money move left former Angels outfielder Torii Hunter feeling angry. ``I was told money was tight but I guess the Arte had money hidden under a Mattress. Business is business but don't lie,'' Hunter tweeted.
