Angels in lengthy negotiation for Pujols

The most compelling question of the baseball offseason -- Where is Albert Pujols going to sign? -- isn't nearly as straightforward as it seemed. Sources told on Wednesday evening that the Los Angeles Angels, a team barely mentioned as a possible suitor until the past 24 hours, were engaged in a lengthy set of negotiations with Pujols' agent, Dan Lozano.

Ben Cherington Says Red Sox Had No Plans to Pursue Albert Pujols

DALLAS –– There were no plans for the Red Sox to partake in the Albert Pujols free-agent frenzy.

Angels Sign C.J. Wilson Too, It Just Keeps Getting Better

Jerry Dipoto just can't be stopped.  On the same morning he signs Albert Pujols, he also adds C.J.
