Josh Hamilton as an Angel (through August 9)


Recommended Posts

Numbers look about right considering how often he swings and misses. No chance he's anything more than a .250 hitter when he's striking out at a 30% clip. The only surprise is the big power decline


He's pretty much been Gary Matthews Jr here, statistically


Guy showed a ton of red flags the 2nd half of 2012 and this team just ignored them all and gave him that contract when his market was actually pretty tame

I wont say Gary Matthews was the 2nd worst.  5 years 50 million seems like chump change right now.   


5/$50M in 2007 is probably like 5/$80M now in terms of contract inflation. Consider that Little Sarge had ONE previous good season and was going to be 32 that year. It was Bill Stoneman's worst moment in an otherwise excellent run as the Angels GM.

Hamilton will probably end up passing everyone except Wells, and by the end of the ten years Albert will be the undisputed #1.


Final rankings will be


1. Pujols

2. Hamilton

3. Wells

4. GMJ

5. Moo


I think Hamilton passes Wells since he's under contract for a year longer than Wells was, so that's another year of wasting $20+ million

Vaughn went from being an excellent hitter to a merely above average one. His numbers as an Angel look good on the surface, but that was 1999-2000 when 30 HR wasn't all that special. His two years prior to coming to the Angels were at 150 and 151 wRC+; as an Angel he was 115 and 114, the injured for an entire year before being traded to the Mets. He was being paid huge money at the time to hit similarly to what Pujols is doing this year.
