Mike Trout wants to buy an actual baby trout and bring it with the team on the road

Mike Trout is about to have a truckload of disposable income coming his way pretty soon. While most dudes would buy themselves a new house, or a new car, or maybe a cool watch, it seems like Trout wants to invest at least some of his new dough on a more ... piscatorial purchase.

Like Calhoun and Pujols, I'm also skeptical that keeping a small fish alive as you drag it around with you on the road would be possible. But like, are we really going to doubt Mike Trout? If anyone could somehow keep that thing ticking, it's him.

Also, I'm very for clubs bringing pets with them on the road. Having a team animal that everyone can rally around is both great for team camaraderie and weird pet content.
