The Angels want both Albert Pujols AND C.J. Wilson

When you hear about a team being in on two big free agents it’s usually an either/or situation, with one of them being the fallback.  We’ve seen the Marlins want it all so far, but now another team is going all Veruca Salt: the Angels, who Ken Rosenthal says want both C.J. Wilson and Albert Pujols.

That seems kind of nutty to me, especially given how much money they still owe dudes like Vernon Wells.  Rumors are rumors and they’re very cheap right now. I suspect that this is just something people are speculating about as they wait for something to happen, not some part of an actual scheme by the Angels to pay over $300 million for a couple of guys.

    All 30 teams WANT both Wilson and Pujols. Another stupid tweet.

    And the Angels wanted Crawford AND Beltre last year. That worked out.
