1. Mike Trout is still a franchise player.

Despite only making the playoffs once during his career, Trout is still a player that will help make any team a championship contender with the right pieces surrounding him. Trout can beat you in s many ways, with his bat, his arm, and his legs.  He is the ultimate five-tool player scouts always speak about. If the Angels make the right moves and build a young nucleus around him this Angel team can be something special. The fact that it hasn’t happened yet is alarming, but not unusual.

There have been many great players who have waited a long time before playing for a World Series championship team or even a pennant winner for that matter.  People have been saying for awhile now that the Angels are wasting Mike Trout’s best years, but it does take time to build a winner as well as some luck which the Angels have not had much of in the past few years. They now have Shohei Ohtani who is the next great thing for the Angels, but Trout is still the top dog at the moment.

This is not to mention all the intagiables Mike Trout brings to the table especially from the fans perspective.  If the Angels do not re-sign Trout or trade him away it will cause a severe backlash in the Angels fan base that may take some time for the team to recover from.
