    Hamilton, Trout, Pujols and Trumbo will combine for at least 140 home runs next, by themselves.

    Well they do have OFs to spare and pitching to acquire.

    Yeah, they are very close. All depends how Pujols is in 2013. I wonder is he has a resurgence.

    Moving Trumbo or Bourjos to the Mets for Dickey, perhaps

    Moving trumbo for dickey would be a terrible mistake...trumbo has lots of potential and dickey isnt getting younger

    Trumbo's overrated because he hits a lot of home runs.

    Terrible defense and OBP decreases his value

    Bourjos is a much better player

    Apparently angels dont see it that way as bourjos spends most of his time on the bench...if other teams see it that way more power to them as they may keep the guy they want

    I think the Angels will rue the day they piled all of that money onto Pujols & Hamilton. These guys aren't getting any younger, and that is a ridiculous amount of money for a long-term return on their investment. Besides, their pitching isn't All That.

    From June through September, Pujols had one of the best OPS in the majors. Ended up second in the league with 80 XBH playing in a pitcher's park. He may not win any more MVP's, but I bet he will do just fine.

    Maybe in 2008 and 2010(though he did hit the ball well on the road too), but the last two seasons his home and away splits look like this....

    Home: 518 AB, 98 R, 151 H, 31 2B, 3 3B, 36 HR, 123 RBI, 55 BB, 120 SO, .292 AVG, .354 OBP, .571 SLG, .926 OPS, .384 wOBA, 137 wRC+

    Away: 531 AB, 85 R, 154 H, 31 2B, 4 3B, 32 HR, 99 RBI, 44 BB, 135 SO, .290 AVG, .346 OBP, .544 SLG, .890 OPS, .374 wOBA, 130 wRC+

    The Mets are cash strapped, but they'd need to pay part of Dickey's salary...
    WAR? Prove it!

    We'll see. I think the Cards were smart by letting him walk.

    Josh is far from overated he is about 2-4 times as good as anything the Yanks have or any other team in CF for that matter.

    That is a completely different discussion point all-together. Pujols could have a great 2013 and the Cards still be smart for letting him walk.

    They better win within a few years, because they will be just like the yankees soon...a bunch of old guys with contracts they dont earn

    We are not taking the opportunity to trash the Yankees for the sake of trashing the Yankees. They have absolutely nothing to do with this deal. Thanks.

    Hamilton is at least twice as good as Mike Trout?? Right now, he's not even better.
