Well, sometimes you make a plan and while it might not be popular, you stick by the plan, you lay low, and then…you blow it all up. The Angels have been criticized this winter for not doing enough, but last night they went out and traded for Vernon Wells. Not just that, they are picking up the rest of his seemingly unmovable contract. MLB Trade Rumors collects some reactions to the deal [2]; Hardball Talk has more [3].

What was it P.T. Barnum was supposed to have said [4]?

Closer to home, old pals Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez have agreed to join the Ray [5]s. At least it’ll be fun to see them around more often this season.
