Free agent Josh Hamilton agreed Thursday to a contract with the Los Angeles Angels, a source with direct knowledge of the deal told ESPN Dallas talk show host Ben Rogers.


Hamilton will receive a five-year contract for $25 million per season, the source said.


Hamilton's former team, the Texas Rangers, had been in negotiations to retain the 2010 MVP. Hamilton's camp had also reportedly met with the Mariners at the winter meetings.

Hamilton, 31, has batted .304 in his big-league career, all but 90 games of it in Texas. He has provided big power in the middle of the Rangers' lineup, helping the team to World Series appearances in 2010 and '11.

Hamilton hit .285 with 43 homers and 128 RBIs in an inconsistent 2012 season that didn't finish well; a vision problem caused him to miss five games, he struggled offensively and he had an error in the AL West-deciding loss to Oakland.

Overpaid, but hell I'll take it if it means no Texas!

Texas is screwed. They really need to make a move trade Elvis or Profar for a proven hitter

Is it true that the sobriety bonuses could push the value past $150 million?

Re: Source: Josh Hamilton to Angels

is it funny to anyone else the guy that brought Rangers back from the dead and made them relevant ends up screwing them hard in the end? I mean did he really have to sign with a division rival? its just weird and funny that the guy would do this to Texas


Or he could end up totally falling apart and not even come close to be worth that contract. But i dont think that will happen

The division rival had the best offer. He took it. Why does this have to be about Texas?

Re: Source: Josh Hamilton to Angels

This is the biggest waste of FA money since...last year, when Moreno spent all that money for a 3rd place finish.

I think Hamilton is grossly overpaid here.
