Baseball super agent Scott Boras got his three top clients signed to massive contracts in consecutive days.

According to reports, the Los Angeles Angels have signed ex-Washington Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon on a seven-year, $245 million contract.

The Angels were hot in pursuit of former Houston Astros ace Gerrit Cole, but were outbid by the deep pockets of the New York Yankees. With the top pitcher off the market, the Angels opted to get arguably the best hitter on the market.

Rendon had received interest from the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Dodgers, but ultimately the Angels were the team to give him an offer he couldn't refuse.

This past season with the Nationals, Rendon posted a .319 batting average, and 1.010 OPS with 34 home runs and a league-leading 126 RBI.

Now, Hollywood has got itself a new power duo in the form of Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon. Oh yeah, and don't forget about Shohei Ohtani.
