Trout about to sign 12/430 deal

Recommended Posts

well worth the money if you base it off what Machado and Harper just got.

 

Trout is way better than both of them.

I guess Rick and Kenny can stop scouting Trout's relatives and friends.

Once again...Machado's deal was a "Bargain" compared to market rate. We will never have a chance at a top 10-15 player for under 300 million ever again. But at least we will have that Eloy money saved up for years...

That's a steal. Seriously. He could/should make substantially more than that.

Yes, I was going to say this is good for baseball, good for Trout, and good for White Sox fans, as we will be spared the half assed pursuit of him during free agency, where bringing in his friends, or letting him meet Jim Thome should be enough for  him to take tens of millions less than anyone else.

Obviously at his price KW cannot afford to build a winning team.

I am surprised Trout was so willing to re-sign with the Angels. They have been absolutely terrible at surrounding him with any talent.

Imagine being paid half a billion dollar and 90% of people wouldn't recognize you walking your dog. 

That's the dream.

The $250 mill guaranteed the Sox were going to offer was a better deal to be honest.

Sox would have offered 8 years, $300 mill with a bunch of incentives and options to be worth 12 years, $460 mill. 

Kenny: "Our offer is better. All he has to do is basically stay healthy."

Take the money and run.

Quick, Kenny and Rick:  lob over a 10/300 deal before he signs!  That way you can brag to your fanbase about how the Sox were prepared to offer the largest contract in team history.  #seatatthetable

Shouldn't the Angels save that money to sign their players five years from now?  Seems like an irresponsible use of money

So much for Harper recruiting him to the Phillies in a couple years.

Looks like a great deal for both sides, especially the Angels.  He's worth more than that, probably.
