Trout wanted a 13 year deal


Recommended Posts

I don't know...13 sounds risky but I'm not sure the Angels won't be regretting this. I imagine some of that stems from not wanting that huge AAV to be on the books. Currently it's at around 24 million starting next year. You add 30 million for another 6 years and the overall value of the contract hits the books at a much higher rate than the current contract at 7 years. Hmm...doing the math...350 million over 13 years is a 27 AAV. So, it actually isn't a huge bump. Yeah, I'm going to fall back in the camp that there's a good chance the Angels might regret this.

I would have only went to 13 years if there was a club option at years 7, 9 and 11. Or eliminate the "No trade" after year 7. Not enough protection for the organization based on what was in the story. Otherwise, I am happy with the current deal.
