I just received an email that the Rangers signed Josh Hamilton to a two year deal covering 2011 and 2012.
Josh gets $7.25 million in 2011 and $13.75 million in 2012 with a $3 million bonus. That's a total of $24 million for the two years. If Josh repeats his numbers from last year, that's a major bargain for the Rangers. If he can stay healthy AND put up those kinds of numbers, he's looking at a huge payday after 2012.
Thanks Rangers, for making me happy today. You took my mind of the Michael Young debacle.
Oops, I've been avoiding thinking about Young for the past couple of days. Avoiding it to the point where I haven't read the sports page in the paper (no offense Night Owl!).
Come on Spring Training!
