Default Angels to extend Trout

6 years, $140 Million per multiple sources.

If he keeps up what he's been doing that's an absolute bargain for the Angels.

I agree 110%. Unlike Cabrera, Trout can play all-star defense to match his offense. You've got to think that in 6 years, Trout will still be playing at an elite level and hitting his stride. He's a special player that you build a team around and that's just what the Halos are doing.

So that's how you sign a guy to an extension without looking like a jackass.

Good deal for both sides mostly because Trout is on schedule to be an FA at 28 years old.

Quite the catch for the Angels.

Default #1 Draft Choices

Just think the White Sox had the opportunity to draft Mike Trout, instead they drafted Jared Mitchell. Imagine Trout playing for the White Sox. The entire perception of the team and franchise would be different.
