I guess neither team remembers what happened to Tom Hicks (or what Hicks is going through right now.)

The Angels are already a better team than the Rangers were when they signed A-Rod.


The Rangers were 71-91 when they signed A-Rod, and one player can move a team's record no more than 6 games, 10 at the outermost.


The Angels already had a good team 86-76, adding Wilson and especially Pujols makes them an instant contender for the West title or a wild card.


The Marlins' situation is more problematical; but they've added 3 good pieces, a better closer, a good starter, and a top shortstop. Their fate will hinge on two things: whether Josh Johnson can stay in the rotation this year, and what Hanley Ramirez will do. If they get favorable answers to both questions, they can contend for a Wild Card.

Keep thinking that. That's not how economics works, thanks.

Oh, I thought you were talking about baseball success. Because the Angels just got 5-10 games better.


Now, if you're talking team finances, this would seem to contradict your previous position concerning the Yanks, as, in the past, you wanted the Yanks to let payroll be no object to picking any superstar you had your eye on.

Yanks had hard time beating Angels before today. Do not see how this helps us at all. Also there are 2 viable teams in West now which makes Wild Card possibilities not a slam dunk for an AL East Team. Angels starting pitching is better than ours although we have edge in bullpen. I still say Yanks make move for starter, but if not they are asking for trouble. I really do not want to see Freddie Garcia as our number 2 or 3 come playoff time again.

Yeah I'm sure the Rangers are thrilled they lost their ace to their rivals.  They must be jumping up and down for joy!

No he wasn't the reason they lost the WS is because their closer couldn't hold a 2 run lead and then the following inning they blew another 2 run lead in extra innings.
