The Los Angeles Angels are aiming to reach a multiyear contract extension with outfielder Mike Troutaccording to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.

According to the report, the new deal “is expected to make Trout one of baseball’s highest-paid players.” Trout, 22, wouldn’t be eligible for arbitration until 2015.

In his second season, Trout hit .323 with 27 home runs, drove in 97 runs, and led the American League in walks and runs scored. He finished second in AL Most Valuable Player voting for the second straight year.

As I see it, the Angels will be paying Pujols, Trout and Hamilton about $25 million a piece for the next ten years. And still not qualifying for post season.

The facts are this:  There is absolutely NO truth or evidence that Trout is on roids, or ever has been.  Trout is one of the top 5 players in the game, and he's only 22.  If the Angels don't sign him to a long term contract soon, he will become a free agent eventually and when he does, he will sign the biggest contract in the history of sports.  Figure he signs for 10 years and $325 Million.  (IF he becomes a free agent in 2-3 years).  


You idiots making "roid" comments are loser tools who know fu cking NOTHING.

If this were football, I would part with the big bucks. I think Mr. Trout would have to amply pass the previous season numbers first.

@John4  

Angry profanity:  the great credibility enhancer.

Have you been asleep for 20 years?  Because everyone with great average/power hitting numbers is going to be suspect from now on, thanks to the legacy of the roids era.

Don't like it?  Too bad.  It's reality.  Foaming at the mouth about your fave won't change that.

@John4 He needs six years of service time to become a free agent.  He currently has two.

@x72  Def you have made a very stupid comment.  There is ZERO suspicion and ZERO indication that Trout has used steroids.  He has a natural body weight, and no drastic weight gain.  x72 - Why would you make such an idiotic comment?

@The_truth_hurts  I wonder if HE and Albert share needles.  Your grammar is pitiful, and your comment is idiotic.  There is NO indication that either Trout or Pujols has EVER been on roids.  Pujols' weight has basically stayed the same for his entire career.  You just get dumber.  Sorry for the truth.

@PackersFanNumeroUno  Actually, it is 100% guaranteed you have NO evidence.  I thought Packers fans were smarter than that.  Guess not.  That's kind of sad and pitiful for you.

His physical features seem to back your speculation...

@John4 @The_truth_hurts 

I wonder why YOU are trolling?

Do you work for Mikey?  Or just have a man-crush on him, like the sportswriter clowns ready to build him an altar because he's a good player not in yucky ol' flyover country?

@lavudyar WOW.  An Ohio State fan making intelligent comments.  Never thought I'd see the day.  Very well done.

@The_truth_hurts That's just being redundant. Here, I'll use small words and try to simplify the question: what makes you think Trout uses drugs?
