Some may say it is only preseason and there is no need to go all out, but that seems to be the only way that L.A. Angels outfielder Mike Trout does it.

I have a feeling that the Angels are going to be sorry that they stiffed him on his contract. Last season's American League Rookie of the Year and runner up MVP only made about $480K last season. Seems like a no-brainer that his pay gets bumped up right?
It did--just not very much. The Angels decided to just renew his contract with only a minimal pay raise. Rather than get the seven figure salary that he deserves he is going to get $510K; just 20K over league minimum.
Trout has been handling it well so far saying that he will have to just go out and prove that he deserves more with his play this season. His agent has been less happy about it; he should probably consider himself lucky that Trout doesn't can him for letting this travesty happen.
In all fairness, the team...
