Big things are coming for baseball fans in California. Have you heard about the HUGE Anthony Rendon contract? The Los Angeles Angels just signed the former Washington Nationals player!
The 2019 World Champion signed a seven-year, $245 million deal yesterday and this means big things for the Angels, as Anthony Rendon is one of the top players in all of baseball.
After all, this MLB star had an outstanding .319 batting average and knocked in a remarkable 126 runs during the regular season last year. But what really stands out was what he did in the playoffs.
He also smashed home runs in Games 6 and 7 of the World Series against the Astros, and he was a huge factor in their World Series victory.
Anthony's clutch hitting and outstanding fielding makes him one of the best players in the league.
With Rendon joining forces with baseball god Mike Trout and rising phenom Shohei Ohtani, the Angles lineup is looking pretty scary for the 2020 season.
Mix in players like Justin Upton and Albert Pujols and you could have a lineup that is destined for success.
As this blockbuster signing puts the magnifying glass on the other team in LA, many people feel that the Dodgers lost their chance at landing a superstar.
But there is still tons of time for the Dodgers to find their guy, and they're currently involved in heavy discussions involving a trade with Francisco Lindor of the Cleveland Indians.
After Rendon was signed, the story was trending on Twitter in a matter of minutes.
While Nationals fans were a little heartbroken, Angel's fans rejoiced.
Someone even got baby Yoda involved...
For how well Rendon will play this next season, only time will tell. With a lineup like that, it seems like the Angels could be a solid contender in the American League.
For that other team in LA, we'll just wait patiently to see what Hollywood has in store for us next.
