Angels Get Tweet of the Decade

New, 182 comments

Bob Nightengale of USA Today tweeted a masterpiece of swagger on behalf of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim late Wednesday night:

The say that they can afford to sign both Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson, shelling out in excess of $300 milliion.

I could link to a million things like LaTroy Hawkins thanking "Halo Heaven" for so may followers adding him on Twitter or the fact that Yu Darvish will post today so ESPN will be covering the Red Sox and Yankees jockeying for a posting fee orgy as their entire baseball coverage from this point forward or any number of other things, but instead let's just enjoy the Tweet of the decade.

C.J. Wilson has less mileage on his arm than any pitcher in baseball with his numbers over the past two seasons. Albert Pujols had a 150 OPS+ in 2012, the worst full season of his career. Arte Moreno is not talking this Winter. He's signing checks.
