Mike Trout has been the most amazing and talented players the Angels have ever had.  He has done so much already in the seven seasons he has worn Angel Red.  However, should the Angels break the bank to keep him?

From a fan’s perspective it is a no brainer that the LA Angels should do everything in their power to keep Mike Trout on the Angels for his whole career.  Besides the fact that he is an amazingly talented player, he is also a great ambassador for the game of baseball and the Angels. Trout is always gracious to those around him and fans he comes in contact with, which is not always the case with superstar players (Bryce Harper, Barry Bonds, and a few others come to mind, although I do think Harper is improving in this area).

However, baseball is also a business and on that side of things the decision to break the bank for Trout is not as simple. Teams including the Angels have signed major players to big contracts (Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton, and Alex Rodriguez come to mind) that have not worked out so well for the team.  So here is a look at the top 3 reasons the Angels should re-sign Trout and the top 3 reason why they should not re-sign Mike Trout.
