Mike Trout Proves He Is Worth Much More Than the Los Angeles Angels are Paying Him

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. Your browser does not support iframes. 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...

Mike Trout’s Agent Says his Contract for $510K is Unfair

I don’t think anyone who witnessed Mike Trout’s phenomenal season last year for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, can disagree with his agent Craig Landis’ assertion that his client is going to be grossly underpaid for the approaching baseball season. Under the MLB’s collective bargaining agreement, in most cases, players aren’t arbitration eligible until they have three...

How Fair is MLB’s Salary Scale?

Over the weekend, the Angels renewed Mike Trout‘s contract, opting to pay him $510,000 — $20,000 over the league minimum — for the 2013 season. Because of how great Trout was last year, this has caused some backlash, including these comments from Trout’s agent: “I asked only that the Angels compensate Mike fairly for his historic 2012 season, given his service time,...

Why The Angels Made The Right Call On Mike Trout

I think we can all agree that last season, the Los Angeles Angels Mike Trout put on quite a show. But disagree if you must, the Angels did nothing wrong giving Trout that second-year salary.

Girardi flip-flops on Granderson-Gardner fielding switch

It looks like the Brett Gardner-Curtis Granderson experiment in centerfield has concluded even before it really got started. Gardner started in left field Sunday — even with Granderson out of action with a broken forearm — with Melky Mesa in center leading New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi to admit that the whole idea of flip-flopping their positions this season is basically...

Trout gets three hits in Angels' loss vs. A's

PHOENIX (AP) -- John Jaso had a bases-loaded triple, Brandon Moss had two hits and an RBI, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Los Angeles Angels 13-5 on Monday. Vernon Wells hit a three-run home run, extending his hitting streak to five games, and reigning AL Rookie of the Year Mike Trout had three hits for the Angels, who lost their third straight. Howie Kendrick and Scott Cousins...

Closer Look

Chris Perez has been shut down for 3-4 weeks. The Indians are saying it's due to a shoulder strain. Seems pretty coincidental that Chris Perez rocks a mullet and there's a guy with a "business on top, party in the back" haircut on The Amazing Race this season. I'm calling BS. "Yeah, what's up?" Sorry, didn't mean to actually call BS. ...

An open letter to Mike Scioscia

Dear Mike, Hope you’ve had a great offseason. I’m sure you weren’t ready to leave work to go on break, but, hey, any opportunity to get some lasagna and watch some football right? Like all good times, Mike, this one must too come to an end. Our restful, baseball-less break is over. Now, it’s time to stash the ‘ol LA Extreme jersey (and the pyrex baking dish) and get...
