Would a lifetime contract for Mike Trout have actually been a good idea?

In the wake of Giancarlo Stanton signing his record-breaking 13-year, $325 million contract, I can’t help but recall that report from earlier in the year where the Halos casually let it slip that before signing Mike Trout to a six-year, $144.5 million mega-extension that Trout’s agent actually broached the idea of a lifetime contract for Trout.
