UPDATE -- It is 5 years, $77.5 million
Jon Heyman is reporting that C.J. Wilson has agreed to a five year, $75 million deal with the Anaheim Angels.
Okay, remember how I said that I thought the Pujols contract was a lousy contract and would hurt the Angels long-term?
Don't feel the same way about this deal. 5 years, $75 million is a fairly reasonable price for C.J., and I would have been happy if the Rangers' locked him up for that amount.
I've been resigned for a while to the fact that C.J. would be leaving, and been okay with the idea that he was going to the Angels, because I assumed the Angels would be moneywhipping him. They didn't, though...they signed C.J. to a reasonable deal that gives them a pretty stacked rotation.
This is a problem. I still don't think that the Angels are better than the Rangers, but this Wilson contract is a pretty good signing for Anaheim.
