CapFigure Podcast – Episode 5 (Time to Trade Trout?)

CapFigure Podcast – Episode 5 (Time to Trade Trout?)

Mike Trout is a true generational talent.  At only 25 years old, Trout’s production and skill-set puts him along-side the likes of all-time greats Mickey Mantle, Alex Rodriguez, Ted Williams, Al Kaline and Miguel Cabrera.  With the Los Angeles Angels 16.5 GB in the AL West and a barren farm system providing a bleak outlook for the near future, the whispers of exploring a trade of the super-star center-fielder have become louder.

In this episode of CapFigure Podcast, Ryan and Tom explore all aspects of a potential blockbuster deal for Trout.  After deriving an approximate value for the 25 year old center-fielder, Tom explores potential suitors that have the ammunition to pull the trigger on a deal.  Presenting packages comprised of both prospects and big-league ready talent, Tom attempts to pry Trout from the Angels as Ryan cynically attempts to discredit the merits of each trade.  Deal or No Deal…Hilarity ensues.
