Angels GM Billy Eppler sensed Mike Trout’s commitment to Angels years ago

TEMPE, Ariz. — Billy Eppler began to have an idea Mike Trout would be interested in being an Angel for life a couple years ago, with occasional text messages he’d get at 11 at night. “I would be looking through our minor league box scores,” the Angels general manager said, “and I would get a text from him and he would say ‘Look at what so-and-so did tonight,’ or ‘How about so-and-so?’ I hadn’t really seen that from players before.

Why most pro athletes — including Mike Trout — are worth every penny of their big money salaries

Angels center fielder Mike Trout has succeeded as a low-key player in a low-key market, and he obviously has decided the stability and the lifestyle were worth agreeing to a 12-year, $426.5 million deal now and staying in Orange County, rather than waiting for 2020 and shooting for a $500 million-plus contract.
