mrbunnyhead is right. To me what is interesting is he had two years at $33M each on the books. In extending he's upped the annual value to $35.83M, which doesn't keep up with inflation, but also doesn't keep up with aging. He gave a hometown discount. The Angels secured his family's future for a couple of generations at least. I think that's a fair deal.

I think that they are adding 10/$364 on the end of his existing 2-year contract at 2/$66.

Eugene- I am seeing 10/$364, not 12/$430.  Kinda large difference. And maybe a lot lighter.

It's a bit sad that we might never see Trout in the post-season ... I hope that's just a thoughtless reaction ...

Reported extension 12 years $430MM.  I think it's a little light.

I had written this under Harper: I can see Trout signing a 10 year $400MM contract to stay in Anaheim.  That would essentially be a 12 year deal if he signs it soon.  12 years at $468MM.  Might as well add an extra year and make it 13 at $500MM.  Not only would it be significantly more than anyone else's deal, it would also take him to a significantly later age than any of the other deals.  He'd be signed through age 39 whereas everyone else seems to end at age 36.

55 in CBS.  Betts the same.  Meanwhile 50 of the 120 non-C hitters auctioned went for 5 or less, as opposed to 37 in last year's Tout.  I can see refusing to commit on playing time situations, but some of the cheap hitters are guaranteed jobs and should be going for high single digits, not low.    I see Mike G. reacted by not paying top dollar.  According to him below, we are going to have to wait an entire week for the NL though.

I've been a fan all along so I don't feel your pain. Should I give him a one year bump to $13?

It pains me to see to see Clevinger go for $24. I traded him last year to Peter in July. His salary this year was $18 and he just kept getting better.

I think Tim (McLeod) and Phil (Texpope) both are.

We will have the CBS prices in the Feb. 28 update.
