Baseball Is Dead Episode 186: No Trade For Trout

2/19/2024
Mike Trout wants to stay with Angels, stating that requesting a trade would be “taking the easy way out.” We’re talking about why he doesn’t want to leave and why he’s so heavily scrutinized for wanting to stay. Spring training is here and we still have tons of free agents without jobs. Snell, Montgomery, Chapman, and Bellinger are all still looking for a home in 2024. We’re talking about where they might go and why it’s taking so long. Manfred announced his 5-year retirement tour and proposed a free agency deadline and we talk about what that could look like if it came to fruition. We also have more Anthony Rendon comments on not prioritizing baseball reenacted by Jared and Dallas. Also: update on the A’s situation, Padres problems, Liam Hendriks to the Red Sox, Woodruff back to the Brewers, 1931 MVP Hindsight, Story Time With Joe, and our Mt. Rushmore of catchers.

Today we’re reacting to the MLB Awards “finalists” even though we pretty much know who won. We got Blake Snell poised to win his second Cy Young, Cole chasing his first, Ohtani and Ronnie as the MVP favorites, and some interesting ROY and MOY races.
