MLB: Mariners linked to Robinson Cano – reports

7 December 2013 | 12:07 am Goodbye New York. Hello Seattle?

    If You Were The Angels, Would You Offer Mike Trout A 10 Year Contract Right Now? Trout is going to be 22 years old next year. Here are his last two seasons:

    2012 – .326 / .399 / .564 / .963, 30 HR, 83 RBI, 129 R, 49 SB, 5 CS

    2013 – .323 / .432 / .557 / .988, 27 HR, 97 RBI, 109 R, 33 SB, 7 CS

    One reason the Angels may consider doing this is because Trout is probably going to get a 10 year contract in four years when he becomes a free agent, if he continues to play at the level he is currently playing at. So the thinking I’m talking about would be why not offer him 10 years right now and pay him big money for ages 22-31? If they wait until he becomes a free agent they may have to pay him the same amount of money or more for ages 26-36. Or they may lose him altogether because another team may offer more money, ala what just happened with Robinson Cano, the Yankees, and the Mariners.

    On the other side, if you were Mike Trout and the Angels offered you a 10 year, $250 million contract right now, would you accept it?

      As unbelievably amazing as Mike Trout has been, I would never offer a player a 10-year contract after just 2 seasons in the MLB. Trout will be making league minimum ($500K) for the next 2 seasons. It makes no sense to offer him a contract and pay him $50M over those 2 seasons when you can just pay him $1M.

      If you are going to offer him a contract of that size, you wait at least until he has 4-5 years of MLB service. At that point, not only will he be proven, but he will be making a good amount of money through arbitration any way. That would be the point in time where you offer him a contract extension to lock him up before he reaches free agency.

  • Robinson Cano Agrees To Terms With The Seattle Mariners? Is gonna officially be a Seattle Mariner any day now. What are your thoughts? 240 Millions 10 years? I think hes way overpaid, hes one of my favorite players but he is getting too much and he is about to be 32, I think hes gonna be 42 when he contract is up. Among the worst contracts in baseball IMO.

  • Chaos says:

    Cano For 10 Years/$240 Million, Pedroia For 7 Years/$100 Million Or Wright For 8 Years/$138 Million? As in Robinson Cano, Dustin Pedroia and David Wright, respectively

    If you were a GM or owner, which one of the three contracts would you most likely agree to?

    • Curator says:

      1. Pedroia
      2. Wright
      3. Cano

      What’s interesting is that they’re all around the same age.

      Cano’s contract is just simply absurd, so he automatically gets placed third. Even though I think Wright is better than Pedroia, a great 2nd baseman is harder to come by than a great 3rd baseman. When you couple that with the fact that Pedroia’s contract is easier on the pockets than Wright’s is, I have to go with Pedroia.
