The Angels new TV deal more than pays for Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson

As I noted yesterday, the Angels’ offers to Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson make sense given that they are/were in the process of negotiating a new television deal.  Well, Bill Shaikin has the details on it, and everything makes a ton of sense now. The Angels are making a mint.

The deal is for $3 billion over 20 years. That means $150 million a year. The current deal they have is for $50 million a year.  You don’t need a calculator to see that those new contracts are more than paid for.

Heck, there’s enough money now to go sign Prince Fielder too. Make him the bullpen catcher or something.
