There's a lot of good baseball guy on here, so I thought we could have a discussion on his contract.
Does a 22 year old kid want to commit for 10 years? Or there a bouts.
Do the Angles want that long of a commitment?
Does he want an opt out?
Would he rather have a shorter contract so he can be a FA at the beginning of his prime?
What's fair for both parties?
If I'm Trout, I'm gonna want to land two huge contracts. The second one being the larger. I'd be looking for something like 6/115 with an opt out after 4 years. He can opt out at the age of 26 if he chooses to. It would be a feeding frenzy for him at that age. Somebody would give him a 10/350 at that stage of his career.
Of course this is all predicated on him continuing his success, and staying healthy.
Or does he want to make sure he get the largest and longest contract right now? What do you guys think?
