MLB - Angels land both Pujols and Wilson

"Brace yourself, Baseball World. The Angels aren't kidding around.

That message was delivered loud and clear on Thursday morning, when they concluded their Winter Meetings by signing the top hitter of the last decade and the top pitcher of this year's free-agent class -- Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson.

In other words, the Angels and first-year general manager Jerry Dipoto have snatched a no-doubt Hall of Famer still very much in his prime and an ace from the division-rival Rangers, adding them to a team that has missed the playoffs in back-to-back years but still won 86 games in 2011."
