Good job to Toronto on this move. Hopefully the rest of MLB follow suit.

The Save America's Pastime Act, which was passed as part of the $1.3 trillion US spending bill approved by Congress last March, officially exempted Major League Baseball teams from federal wage and overtime rules.

Major League Baseball earned a record $10.3 billion in revenue in 2018, the 16th straight year its revenues were a record, according to a Forbes report in January.
Yeah because paying people OT is what is killing baseball.

He's gonna be the richest ballplayer never to win a playoff series (unless he gets traded later on).

Now I don't have to worry that each loss brings Trout closer to the east coast. We can just lose now without consequence.

Does he have an escape clause in this contract?

Again I don't understand why you dont try to get on a contending team?

No opt outs. He's only a couple years away from having 10/5 no-trade rights.

He might genuinely love playing in front of tepista, plus there are a limited number of clubs that'll shell out that kind of cash, even for one of the best ballplayers of time.
