So Mike Trout, eh? - A Hunt and Peck

He signed an extension.

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at Los Angeles Angels Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Mike Trout is a really good baseball player. He has been a really good baseball player since he entered the league in 2011 and every year since has continued to be a really good baseball player. In fact, calling him a really good baseball player does not seem to quite do him justice. He is Really [redacted] Good Baseball Player. He is perhaps the best baseball player in my lifetime. When it is all said and done, he might be the best baseball player ever.

The Angels locked him up.

That is a lot of money and yet that is a great deal for the Angels, an annoyingly great deal, really. Mike Trout just set the ceiling. According to Fangraphs, Trout has already provided nearly half a billion dollars in value for the Angels on a contract worth $144.5 million from 2015 through 2020.

Mike Trout is amazing and I hope he continues to be amazing, especially playing on a team outside of the National League Central.
