On Tuesday, Mike Trout and the Angels sent shockwaves through the sports world by coming to terms on a record breaking, 12-year, $426.5 million contract extension that includes a full no-trade clause and no opt-outs.
On MLB Network’s 30 Clubs In 30 Days, which covered Yankees camp on Tuesday, several Bronx Bombers gave their thoughts on Trout’s mega deal.
That’s a lot of iron. He’s been the best, most consistent player in the game since he walked in the league. He certainly has earned that, and good for him and the Angels for getting it done. Judgey is probably smiling with a lot of these [extensions] going on.
Oh, wow, congrats Mike. That’s well deserved, man. He earned every single penny of that. What he’s done for the game of baseball and the type of player he is on and off the field, that’s much deserved. He could probably double that, too.
He could’ve gotten $530 million. That guy is amazing, bro. I’m glad I’m getting out of the game, because it’s tough for me to get him out. He’s a great player all around, on and off the field he’s a great guy and guys love him. I’m happy for him, I think it’s good for the game.
Good for him. That’s insane. He’s definitely buying if we’re going to dinner.
The Yankees will first see Trout in a four-game series in Anaheim from April 22-25. Trout comes to the Bronx for a three-game set from Sept. 17-19.
