No links yet, but ESPN Radio has "confirmed" that he'll sign with Anaheim for an undisclosed amount. What a huge pickup by the Halos if this is true.

My guess is they'll have Salmon in left, Garret Anderson in center, and move Darin Erstad to first (where he has played before, IIRC) to take the place of Scott Spezio.

He turned down an offer with the Mets.

ESPN.com news services
The Vladimir Guerrero sweepstakes appears to have concluded with yet another twist that will send the free agent outfielder west.


Sources told the Los Angeles Times that the Anaheim Angels agreed to terms with Guerrero late Saturday night and will sign the former Expo star contingent on his passing a physical exam this week.


The deal is for five years and $70 million, accoring to the paper.


"As a matter of policy, we don't comment on speculation," Angels vice president of communications Tim Mead told The Associated Press.


Earlier Saturday, the World Series champion Florida Marlins were thought to be the front-runner. They reportedly had made a one-year offer for at least $10 million, and Guerrero's first choice was believed to be Florida, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.


"I've heard that he would like to go to Florida if the money was appropriate," an unnamed general manager told the Star-Ledger. "My personal opinion is that if Florida came up with a $13 million or $14 million deal, he'd go there."


The Mets and the Orioles had been believed to be the only teams seriously pursuing Guerrero. But the Mets announced Saturday night that they were no longer in the running after Guerrero rejected their three-year offer.


According to the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles reportedly offered a five-year, $67.5 million deal after originally making a five-year, $65 million proposal.


But a team official told the Sun on Saturday that if Guerrero has made a decision, "we're not the team."


The Orioles had been considered the early favorites because they are offering more guaranteed money than the Mets, who reportedly offered a $30 million deal over three years with plenty of incentives. But according to the Star-Ledger report, talks between Guerrero and the Orioles had fallen apart.




Guerrero missed close to two months last season because of a herniated disk but was terrific after returning, finishing the season with a .330 average, 25 home runs and 79 RBI for the Expos.

Don't leave me in all this pain
Don't leave me out in the rain
Come back and bring back my smile
Come and take these tears away
I need your arms to hold me now
The nights are so unkind
Bring back those nights when I held you beside me

1-Un-break my heart
Say you'll love me again
Un-do this hurt you caused
When you walked out the door
And walked outta my life
Un-cry these tears
I cried so many nights
Un-break my heart, my heart

Take back that sad word good-bye
Bring back the joy to my life
Don't leave me here with these tears
Come and kiss this pain away
I can't forget the day you left
Time is so unkind
And life is so cruel without you here beside me
(repeat 1)

Ohh, oh
Don't leave me in all this pain
Don't leave me out in the rain
Bring back the nights when I held you beside me
(rpt 1)

Un-break my
Un-break my heart, oh baby
Come back and say you love me
Un-break my heart
Sweet darlin'
Without you I just can't go on
Can't go on

It's okay, Terpy. At least your team is making an effort to improve itself. My team has added, ahem, John Thomson. :mad:
