Jerome Williams re-signs with Angels

December 12th, 2011

The feel-good story of Jerome Williams hit another sweet note today. Jerome sent me a message this morning saying that he and the Angels have come to a new deal.

“Just signed back with the Angels today. By the grace of God, I’m heading back,” the 30-year-old Waipahu grad said in his text.

In the late 1990s, Williams was the biggest Hawaii high school baseball phenom since Sid Fernandez. He quickly made it to the majors with the Giants, but injuries sent him to the minors. He was nearly out of baseball, but battled back last year and found a spot in the Angels rotation.

With the pick-up of C.J. Wilson we don’t know what Williams’ rotation status is yet. But we don know now that he’s in the team’s plans as it has loaded up to make a big run at some World Series with the addition of Albert Pujols.

More details on Williams’ new agreement with the Angels to come.

    Williams just called with updated info: He said it’s a one-year deal for $800,000.
    I mentioned how great it would be for him to be in such a strong rotation. His response, “Ya think?”
    Mentioned having Albert Pujols in his lineup, and how great THAT would be. His response, “Ya think?”
    It’s safe to say Jerome is happy and excited.
    More on Pujols: “I’m thanking God he didn’t go to some team that I’d have to pitch against. He used to tear me up when I was on the Giants.”

    Of football and mortals – There was an old article in Sports Illustrated around Jan 93 or Jan 94 regarding the quest for coaches to restore lost luster to football programs. It used Alabama as the main focus and was called “The Great Bear Hunt.” The basic gist of the article is that times change and if you look for a “second coming” you create unrealistic expectations in your fans and boosters. Are we there yet?
