Angels and Anthony Rendon agree on seven-year, $245 million contract

After Anthony Rendon agreed to a seven-year, $245 million contract with the Angels on Wednesday night, his former teammate began to rip the Band-Aid off and had some fun with it.

Rendon is a career.290 hitter with an.859 OPS.

But while Vladimir Guerrero and other free agents performed splendidly under the halo, Moreno has received disappointing results with many of his big-ticket acquisitions - from Gary Matthews Jr. and Vernon Wells to the disastrous $125 million deal with Josh Hamilton, and even eight years of steady, but underwhelming production from Pujols, the $240 million slugger.

The Angels traded away Zack Cozart this week, opening up a spot at third base that Rendon will now fill. Last year, the All-Star hit.319/.412/.598 with 34 home runs and an MLB-leading 126 RBIs.

Conyers is a suburban area in Georgia located about 25 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta. "We thought something was on fire". Authorities also shut down a local gas station and told Dion Spencer, one of the station's employees, to stay inside.

Fresh off a World Series championship with the Nationals, Rendon's impact will certainly be felt come spring ... and it's already being felt in the betting market. According to the Washington Post, though the team earlier offered him a seven-year, 210-215-million-dollar contract extension, it did not keep Rendon from seeking better offers on the free agent market.

Moreno acknowledged he was determined to land either Rendon or ace Gerrit Cole, who got a $324 million deal from the Yankees.

Rendon, 29, was the No. 6 overall pick by the Nats in 2011 and made his Major League Baseball debut two years later.

"It's not that we didn't want to play for them, they're a great organization that's built to win", Rendon told reporters, including Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.
