Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports confirmed that Trout's deal is worth $144.5 million. It will take him through his salary arbitration years and the first three years of free agency. The average yearly salary will be almost $24.1 million.

Pretty good deal for both sides imo.

What will it take for the O's to keep Chris Davis from leaving?

I'm guessing, $18-20m per year

While Trout is probably the best player, $24 mil a year for a player with just 2 seasons under his belt seems crazy.  Obviously if he continues at the current level (or exceeds) and stays healthy, it's a great deal.  Still, it's a ton of money for such a young player.

Something similar if his numbers this season hit his averages for the last 2 seasons


Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It has a nice sound to it

Suggs has signed. I've never been so happy to be wrong

Don't blame me, I voted Bob Barr:cool:

It's MLB bro. If I had a dollar for every MLB contract that didn't make sense, I'd be typing this from Tahiti with an umbrella drink in my hand ;)

Sad but true.  There were some pretty funny articles about the ridiculous Cabrera contract.  I guess Trout's next contract will be $40 mil a year.

I think the logic is, they're more likely to get a positive return on their investment. Trout is still pretty young and he hasn't hit his prime yet.

 

The alternative is for them to keep spending that kind of money on aging free agents who's best years are behind them(ie Pujols and Hamilton)...

It's better than whatever Miggy got for a 31 year old ballplayer.

Angelos,will never pay that, or anything close to it. Angelos will not pay that when n his mind he can get 85% of Chris Davis' production for 15% of the cost of Chris Davis.

I never said he would. The question was what it would take. Someone else might offer him $17.9m.

your reasoning is sound. the only reason I disagree with you, is because Trout had an MVP season in 2012. they he followed it up with an even better MVP season in 2013. one MVP season, by a young player, could be dismissed as a fluke. but, when he came back and topped it, he convinced me that he's a next level talent.

And a morally compromised, barely legal Tahitian female in the other hand, no doubt. :)

I agree but Angelos did surprise me this offseason....
