I could of been Mike Trout. Everyone knows I had some massive skills in Triple Play 98, All Star Baseball 2000 and so many other MLB games for consoles.
Mike Trout why did you do me dirty like this. I thought we were friends. It is not that I wanted you to leave the Angels or that I don’t think your a good baseball player… well its just that your going to be getting $35.8 million over the next 12 years and I, living here in the Midwest – where it is actually sunny for once, can’t even comprehend these numbers.
Dude if you make 680 plate appearances a year that averages out to almost $53,000 just to walk up to the batters box. I could do it for a fraction of that. Around here $53,000 is a pretty good number for a year of work. And you’re gonna make us all feel awful by doing that in a minute of activity.
Sure you have to stand out there in the grass on some warm days and hope that baseballs or bird poop don’t hit you in the head but honestly I spend plenty of time doing the same when my kids are playing little league. Oh and you don’t have that awkward trying to get to the game, leaving or finding out that your kids play at different times than one another.
All joking aside the biggest star in baseball now has the biggest contract. What a time to be alive.
