LAAoA Can't Afford to Extend Trout


Recommended Posts

It is a CBT issue.


So, for example: Albert Pujols is making $16 million in 2013, which counts towards the Angels? payroll figure. With regards to the CBT, though, he?s making $24 million ? the average annual value of the 10-year, $240 million contract he signed in December 2011.

How does this relate to Trout?

Well, let?s say the Angels sign him to a 10-year, $300 million deal (that?s just a number I?m throwing out, basically because it?s easy to divide ? and perhaps because I?m thinking of Robinson Cano). Even if in that contract, Trout is making only $1 million in 2014, the figure for the CBT payroll would be the AAV of that: $30 million.
