Texas, Boston, Baltimore - please take note

After all the non-deals and speculation that's been floating around over the past few weeks, it was a refreshing change over the weekend to see a deal come out of nowhere and get done within three days.

After weeks of hearing that the Orioles had Vladimir Guerrero on their winter shopping-list, followed by a late attempt to sign him by the New York Mets, it was the Anaheim Angels who finally swooped out of nowhere to sign Guerrero to a five-year, $70m deal.'s John Schlegel says this signing definitely puts the Angels back in business.
