I’m giving props to Mike Trout for reportedly reaching a record 12-year, $430 million-plus deal with the Los Angeles Angels. However, the Angels, like the Phillies with Bryce Harper, may regret it in long run.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has been around baseball at the highest levels for the past quarter-century. He's played. He's been a broadcaster. He's coached and he's managed. And, in his mind, there isn't a doubt where Angels outfielder Mike Trout, the soon-to-be recipient of the largest contract in major-league history, stands in the player hierarchy.
