"Angels sign Gary Matthews Jr. for $50 million"
According to Rosenthal:
"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."
Ok now, really, this is starting to get out of hand. It's true that little Sarge had an excellent year last year; it's also true that prior to last year he had aspired to (and occasionally reached) mediocrity. If this is what Matthews is going for, the Indians can pretty much forget the FA market and stick to trades.
