Not much of a story. The agent is desperate to prove himself to Trout. There's zero percent chance of this guy being around once Trout hits arbitration. The Angels aren't stupid. There's no reason to give this guy anything he's asking for when he's going to be dumped for Boras, CAA or one of the other super agent groups in another year or two.

Braun gave up 2 years to get his money. I highly doubt Trout has given Landis the authority to talk about anything long term.

Trout and the Angels understand he's outgrown his current agency. Reporters will listen to him, even if nobody else does. His bitterness makes a good story.
