Mike Trout, Angels Future Sale, Lawsuits/Fines Mirrors Similar Scenario To 2017 Marlins

Arte Moreno, owner of the Angels, is currently in the process of selling the team, which he has owned since 2003. The sale is expected to be completed within the next few months and is expected to set a new record for the largest sale in North American professional sports history. Moreno is reportedly anticipating a significant financial return from the sale.

In November 2022, A lawsuit against the Los Angeles Angels, brought by the family of deceased pitcher Tyler Skaggs, will be allowed to proceed. Judge Glenn Salter of the Orange County Superior Court rejected the team's motion to dismiss and set the start date for a 20-day jury trial for October 2, 2023. Skaggs, who was 27 years old, was found dead in a hotel room in Southlake, Texas on July 1, 2019, the same day that the Angels were scheduled to begin a four-game road trip against the Texas Rangers. A toxic mix of alcohol, fentanyl, and oxycodone was found in Skaggs' system, according to the coroner's report. Skaggs' death has been linked to former Angels employee Eric Kay, who was sentenced to 22 years in federal prison last month after being convicted of distributing the drugs that contributed to Skaggs' death. Kay was accused of obtaining and distributing oxycodone pills to players at Angel Stadium between 2017 and 2019.

Arte Moreno has his hands full, if he decides to unload big contracts such as Trout. Before the sale of his team, The Angels. It would make it easier for him to find suitors and the dollar amount he's looking for. The Marlins were in a similar situation when their new owners took over the team.

In 2017, Jeffrey Loria sold the Miami Marlins to a group led by former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and New York businessman Bruce Sherman, with NBA legend Michael Jordan also serving as an investor. The sale, which was announced by Marlins president David Samson, was reportedly worth $1.2 billion, with Sherman serving as the "control person" and Jeter overseeing "the business and baseball sides of the organization" upon the completion of the deal.

That brings us back to Mike Trout

In March 2019, Mike Trout signed a 12 year / $426,500,000 contract with the Los Angeles Angels, including a $20,000,000 signing bonus, $426,500,000 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $35,541,667. In 2023, Trout will earn a base salary of $35,450,000, while carrying a total salary of $37,116,666.

The reason why this article is being written in the first place, it's almost the same scenario in 2017 that brought Giancarlo Stanton to The Bronx.

The insane contracts and money we've seen get tossed around this off-season. Trouts AAV and remainder of his contract doesn't look that bad. Doesn't look that bad to a team like The New York Yankees. Who are looking for a new LF and have the financial resources to take on a contract like Trout's.

NYYNEWS Felix says

Yankees are going to have to spend big money on another position player down the line right? Why not get it out of the way and get Trout off The Angels hands. You could be looking at paying him about 28 to 30 mil a season, have Angels eat up the rest. Essentially, bailing out future ownership of Angels. If the time to ever get Trout was possible, the timeframe is now. You get Donaldson off the payroll etc, very possible.

Here's an article I wrote back in the summer of 2017, about the possibility of Stanton being moved to The Yankees. Before anyone had it [Link]

Gerrit Cole was said to be The elusive "White Whale" for The Yankees. A player that The Yankees tried to obtain numerous times, but slipped away. The same could be said for Mike Trout, in my opinion. Who is much more of a bigger "White Whale" than Cole was to The Yankees.

The Yankees have been rumored in trade scenarios for Pirates Bryan Reynolds. Who is said to command a high price tag in-terms of prospects.

We all saw what it took to get Stanton, he didn't cost as much as it would to get Reynolds.

Hal Steinbrenner was quoted at Aaron Judge's press conference saying, "We’re not done yet." Could Mike Trout be the mysterious "Big Move" The Yankees make this off-season? It would certainly break The Internet.

Is Mike Trout to The Yankees a pipe dream? No, here are two players The Yankees would throw unlimited money to. Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout.

No. 25 overall, no more so than in 2009, when the Angels selected Mike Trout with that pick. That pick was famously lined up to be the Yankees’ selection and was given to the Angels as compensation for the Mark Teixeira signing.

Mike Trout is the perfect candidate to waive his no-trade clause to come to New York. As he grew up a Jeter fan, lives and is from New Jersey.

"Big Move" ...


"At the other extreme is Angels center fielder Mike Trout, who could become quite the trade commodity if he ever decides he wants out. Trout, 31, has missed more than half the Angels’ games the past two seasons, so he would need to demonstrate a consistent pattern of health. But with eight years and $283.6 million left on his deal, Trout might be almost a bargain."
