The deal is off

IF they can somehow sign Hamilton and/or Soriano, they've got a shot. But who knows if they DO want to spend any money this time around!
The offseason just started. Who knows what the Angels have planned. Give it some time. Getting rid of Santana was a good move. Haren hasn't been the same, and Hunter is getting up there in age. They're trying to re-sign Zack Greinke.

Signing Hamilton would be the biggest mistake. That would kill this team in the long run. You have to think about the future, not just the present.
