Update: Angels have now signed C.J. Wilson for 5 years $75 million.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim signed Albert Pujols to a ten year, $250-260 Million deal today, shocking the baseball world.

Wow. I don't think this is a good move for MLB, but as a Yankees fan I can't complain.

As for the Angels, after finishing second, or third, or worse for every free agent they have really wanted over the last few seasons, they finally got their guy.

I'm shocked. Do you think this is just a money move, or what?

In other news, the Yankees selected Washington Nationals RHP Brad Meyers in the Rule V Draft.

Meyers, a right handed relief pitcher, pitched to a 3.48 ERA last season in AAA Syracuse, and gave up 110 hits in 95 innings pitched.

Here's what Baseball America had to say:

take RHP Brad Meyers. Command/bullpen type with 87-91 fastball & three fringy secondary pitches.

The Yankees also traded for Kansas City Royals' Rule V selection, LHP Cesar Cabral of the Red Sox. Baseball America said:

LHP Cesar Cabral. RP type with low-90s fastball, changeup better than breaking ball. Rule 5ed last year.

The Yankees are trying to get a minor league deal done with outfielder Dewayne Wise.

Stay tuned throughout the day for more.
