Angels - Signed Matsui

Los Angeheim Angels - Signed DH Hideki Matsui to a 1-year, $6.5 million contract.

The Angels are losing a good bit of talent this offseason and look to be picking up a couple of placeholders, given that it’s a weak free agent market and they just can’t bring in long-term replacements everywhere.  The main problem with this signing is that it guarantees that Abreu will be in the field.  It probably means the slim chances of Jason Bay signing with the Angels are gone - an outfield with both Bay and Abreu will have flyball pitchers committing ritual suicide by July.
