    Cool SHOHEI OHTANI SIGNS WITH THE ANGELS!

    I did not see that coming. Rejoice, Halos fans.

    Really thought the Pads had a shot. Oh well. Angels come to Petco in August for a 3 game series. Probably check him out then.

    First Maitan and now Ohtani, the Angels pulled off what all the Yankee fans were hoping for

    Coincidentally, Pujols signed with the Angels six years ago today.

    And we can officially stop speculating who will be the #1 prospect on the top 100 lists now. (Acuna vs. Vladdy)

    So much for him saying he didn't want to go to a big market team.

    Super stoked! Are any of his Japanese cards worth picking up? His American stuff has been going crazy lately...

    I'd have to disagree...but I'm obviously biased.

    The Angels now have two top 50 prospects in their farm system! I can't remember the last time I've seen that.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Though I wish he would have signed with the Yankees, I applaud him on being able to sign where he wanted to go!

    Is Maitan still a top 50 prospect? I know I've seen rumblings that a lot of scouts wouldn't put him in the top 100 right now.

    No, but they do have Adell and Jones, both of whom I expect will make the list.

    I just got home turned on the tv onto the mlb channel and saw that Otani was pictured with a Angels hat..

    Well, I guess I might go to a few more games here now that they signed him..

    Definitely not a small market but he did say he'd prefer to go to a team on the way up rather than a powerhouse. I didn't see much in a plan are they going to let him do both??

    I will say it won't matter much until you can get east coast fans to stay up to 1am watching baseball. Still way too much east coast bias even though the best team in baseball hasn't come from the east since 2013.

    Being in the west, it's great news since most of the baseball I watch is mountain and pacific time zone centric.
