From the LA Times - If Angels' Mike Trout is disappointed, he'll probably get over it

There are only 2 people bitter about this.  And if I were Trout, I would question my agent for looking so short term with the media, and not long term.  Really, who's fault is this?  The Angels, or the Agents for not doing his job?

This is not a non-story. Many people are talking about it. It likely won't be a big deal, but it is interesting because many top rookies get bigger raises despite how the system works.  The Angels are very competitive, spending wise, in terms of free agents, and everything else, but they are probably one of the stingier teams when it comes to players under club control.
