Mike Trout has funny quote about his offseason
The MLB offseason has been heavy on rumors but slow on major signings, which has made for a pretty strange environment for a lot of top players.
That includes Mike Trout, who is from near Philadelphia. The Phillies were and still are expected to be active in the market this offseason, and with Trout’s ties to the area, some fans started to dream a bit too enthusiastically.
Mike Trout said much of his offseason has been spent dealing with people asking his he’s going to the Phillies. They also ask if Bryce Harper is coming, too.

Some fans back home probably hoped Trout had some inside information. Sorry, folks.
It’s worth a reminder that Trout is signed through 2020, so he likely won’t be leaving the Los Angeles Angels before then. It certainly sounds plausible that Philadelphia could be a player at that point, but it’s a ways off.
