07:20 AM ET 09.26 | One of the best bargains in baseball won't stay that way forever. [Neither Mike Trout] nor the Angels are in any hurry to make a deal. "I'll answer one question on contract talks -- there have been no discussions," said Craig Landis, Trout's agent. "Obviously, Mike's future is extremely bright. We'll be patient." ... Of playing in Anaheim, Trout said, "I love it here. I love the guys, my teammates, the coaches. It's a great place to play." But in answering a question about returning to New Jersey this off-season to live with his parents, Trout hinted he is open to playing elsewhere. "It's about time to start looking for a house," Trout said. "I'm trying to see what direction my career takes me. Do I want to buy a house out here or some other place?"

The bidding war for him will be ridiculous unless he's injured between now and free agency.

Trout's agent wasn't too happy when his client was renewed by the Angels for the league minimum.

Small town boy who likes his small town roots. Eventually he will end up back on the East coast. Just as other players sometimes find their way back to their old stomping grounds.

Year after year after year??? Seriously. Aren't the rangers pulling another El Foldo Supreme just in time to keep them out of the playoffs???

Starting in Little League he played short stop and wore number 2 in honor of his childhood hero. Only clue needed.

I'd like to see him wear the Yankee pinstripes. He's a fantastic player.
On a side note just heard on ESPN radio that Cano is asking for 305 million 10 year deal.
He's as good as gone and if anybody gives him that kind of contract they're out of their mind.
Somebody will though, or pretty close.

305.
Rumor has it that the Yankees and Cano are at least 100 million apart.

You're right. I've come to terms with the idea that we are a team in transition and we need to tear down some and rebuild but the contracts we have with players are going to make that process take longer than I would like.
