The Crack of the Bat; The Opening of the Wallets: BASEBALL 2013!!!
WOW! The Angels spring for $125,000,000.00 for 32 year-old Josh Hamilton only a year after signing the aging Pujols through his age 42 season (+ another $10 MM/year through age 52)!
Unlike St. Louis shedding tears over seeing their future Cardinal Hall-of-Famer fly away, the folks here in the Metroplex are, if anything, kind of relieved to see Josh go. Yet, we pray for him and wish him nothing but the best. This feature from the local paper kind of sums it up for us Ranger fans: http://www.dallasnews.com/sports/texas-rangers/headlines/20121130-10-reasons-why-rangers-should-be-glad-josh-hamilton-left.ece
