Twitter reacts to Mike Trout’s mammoth contract extension

Mike Trout

Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels have agreed to a contract extension, and to call it massive would be doing the new deal a great injustice.

As ESPN’s Jeff Passan first reported, Trout and the Angels are finalizing a new 12-year contract worth $430 million. That would be the largest contract in professional sports history, and it is also beats the previous MLB record deal Bryce Harper just signed with the Philadelphia Phillies by $100 million.

Trout is obviously a once-in-a-generation talent, but the contract is still shocking. Twitter reacted accordingly:

Harper, of course, had created some controversy by openly recruiting Trout to join him with the Phillies in two years. The Angels were clearly never going to let that happen.
