    That is insane. Trout is an amazing player, don't get me wrong. The problem is soon no one is going to be able to afford to go to games. Its already getting super expensive to take a family of 5.
    Good for him, and I think it's also good for the game for guys to not always go to free agency and go to the highest bidder (although this probably would be the high bid anyway if I had to guess). The guy is going to retire an Angel and his name will be synonymous with that franchise forever. Arte Moreno apparently has cash to burn based on the contracts he hands out, so hopefully fans won't bear the brunt of it in higher ticket prices. Attendance has already been trending down, so I doubt any team is going to be jacking up prices too high.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Trout is probably still underpaid....lol.... As I have been saying here for the last 8 years...... BEST player in baseball. Should have 5 MVP trophies.....

    This is a tough one, you just don't want a Ernie Banks situation where one of the best players doesn't get to the Post Season. Could he have taken less $ to go to a ready made contender???

    I understand living the high life in Newport, fuck it is nice...... But man, in the end what matters in a short career is getting to the post season.

    I been hearing the demise of pro sports since the advent of free agency but it has never happened yet. I love sports but it's hard to support many of these pro sports owners and players. I guess Trouts worth it if Manny MEchado gets 300 million.

    Unfortunately for Trout..... this is true.

    Angles only have 1 prospect in the TOP 50. 19 year old OF, Jo Adell. But he is only in AA, maybe a year away at least.

    They only have 1 pitching prospect in the TOP 100. 22 year old Griffin Canning. He is at AAA and could be up this season.

    Otherwise....BARREN wasteland.

    The MLB team is also getting old and not very good. They have Trout and Shohei Ohtani and then....not much else..... Probably end up around .500 and miss the playoffs....

    They had the best record in baseball(98-64) in 2014, and got swept by the Royals in the playoffs. Since that season they haven't won more than 85 games. The past two seasons they have been in baseball purgatory with identical 80-82 records. They have some hard decisions to make if they want to unseat Houston anytime soon. Mike Trout is still the best player in the game, and I'm glad he's staying.There are a lot of jackasses in baseball, and professional sports in general.He isn't one of them

    sucks that Ichiro's career ends on an 0-fer in Japan, but I'm pretty sure it won't hurt his hall of fame chances

    It was just a gesture for his long career in MLB and Japan. Mariners are in the rebuild process, 6 ABs from Ichiro were inconsequential.

    Won't hurt his HOF chances AT ALL.......

    Pretty great moment for a great dude. Exiting his final game.
