Depends. Trout may very well intend to go to a team with more of what Hawk Harrelson calls The Will To Win (TWTW). That plus that whole scandal where Trout was intentionally drafted after top Cardinals prospect Randal Grichuk so that he could be paid a lower signing bonus. Then there was that time he was snubbed by being given a paltry $20K raise after putting up one of the best seasons of all time. not to mention he may want to move closer to home.

If Trout decides to go to another team at age 29, he should sign for no more than six years at mega millions, knowing that Arte loves to sign 35-year old free agent sluggers. He could then return to the Angels and easily get a ten-year contract worth $250-300 million, adjusted for inflation of course. Arte loves those kind of deals. He goes to the Hall as an Angel and his Yankee years are secondary.

 

Mike could really clean up in this scenario.

the best advice that Pujols is going to give Trout is to stay with the team he grew up with.  

 

the halos will have 1 year of pujols and probably a few home grow player contracts in Calhoun and Richards on the books, but that's about it. 

 

the only thing that would keep Trout from staying is if the team isn't playoff capable come 2021.  Either way though, Arte or whoever owns the team is going to give him 10/400.  

 

and you know what?  it has to be done.

I don't know why this question keeps coming up.  Its like we're an undesirable club to play for or something.  He's in a major market, he's on a team that spends money (someone in this thread suggesting that the team doesn't have the will to win, just a ridiculous notion) and he has the rare opportunity to build a real legacy with one club.  Its all so silly in my opinion.  For every reason that one can imagine him leaving I can easily come up with 2 or 3 for him to stay that are equally valid.  I personally have full confidence the team will do whatever is necessary to keep the best player in baseball on the team.  If he doesn't want to be here then what can be done ?  Its not even worth thinking about.
