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.

Opposing pitchers and managers already don’t treat Mike Trout like just any other 21-year-old, so why do the Los Angeles Angels think it is okay to do so?

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?
