Mar 30, 2014, 10:41 AM EDT

Mike Trout‘s new six-year, $144.5 million contract extension was officially announced on Saturday afternoon and the star outfielder celebrated by going 2-for-4 with a home run in the Angels’ 6-2 exhibition victory over the Dodgers in Anaheim. Trout, 22, then hit up a steakhouse with friend and teammate Garrett Richards

The Angels open their 2014 regular-season schedule on Monday night against the Mariners.

    I’m confused, are they celebrating by eating Stephen Drew? Maybe this is why Boras switched up his food metaphors.

      It’s a Heroes thing. After finishing that steak Trout will be able to play shortstop.

      Well played, sir.

    Great ballplayer, even better person. Good for you Mike.

    Oh my word, it’s like gristle on a stick. Your body is a temple, son. Take care of it while you’re young or you’ll be mainlining fish oil, Bengay and Metamucil when you’re old.

      You say that like it’s enough of a deterrant for any guy to turn down that brontosaurus burger.

      • Old Gator - Mar 30, 2014 at 11:27 AM

        Come on church, you know there weren’t no such thang as brontosaurus. So there they are at Cope and Marsh’s, the finest sauropod steak place in Tinseltown. Trout is eating a camarasaurus chop, and Richards is eating an apatosaurus chop.

      • groupofsevenrules - Mar 30, 2014 at 8:40 PM

        You have perhaps heard of Albertasaurus, Gator?

      • Old Gator - Mar 30, 2014 at 9:12 PM

        Albertosaurus. Theropod. Compact model of the T-rex.

        Too stringy. You don’t need to tenderize sauropod steaks. Took a quick Wicki peek and I see that the type specimen comes from the Red Deer area waaaayyyy south of where you are. Great full name, though – Albertosaurus sarcophagus.

    • Old Gator - Mar 30, 2014 at 11:28 AM

      And what’s wrong with fish oil and Metamucil, anyway?

    • indaburg - Mar 30, 2014 at 11:47 AM

      Oh my word, woman, that looks delicious. :-) Trout’s looks better. Richards’ steak looks like it might be overdone. Never want overdone steak. Ask Boras.

      If you take care of your body, you can enjoy the occasional splurge.

      • Old Gator - Mar 30, 2014 at 2:53 PM

        And if you don’t, you can enjoy the regular splurge.

      • indaburg - Mar 30, 2014 at 3:04 PM

        I’m laughing. Very true.

        I don’t see any sources of resveratrol on the table. If you’re going to eat all that red meat, you need a good antioxidant.

      • Old Gator - Mar 30, 2014 at 5:13 PM

        How about a plastic bag over the head?

      • indaburg - Mar 30, 2014 at 9:55 PM

        That seems a bit extreme. I’d just go with a nice Chilean red.

      • cmtill14 - Mar 30, 2014 at 7:12 PM

        I thought Boras was only an expert on tea…

      • indaburg - Mar 30, 2014 at 7:50 PM

        His previous analogy of choice for his clients was steak: I think the steaks these young athletes are holding are the steaks he was envisioning as his clients. Those are some nice cuts of beef.

      • Old Gator - Mar 30, 2014 at 10:30 PM

        “I’d just go with a nice Chilean red.”

        You dated Salvador Allende?

      Perhaps he should take health maintenance advice from Miggy and start drinking more.

      • historiophiliac - Mar 30, 2014 at 11:45 PM

        Guess it doesn’t pay around here to get sober.

  4. professor30 - Mar 30, 2014 at 11:04 AM

    Can’t compare to the “Ole 96er” John Candy ate in The Great Outdoors, an American classic.

    • culturecesspool - Mar 30, 2014 at 11:20 AM

      Did they throw in some hats for the kids??

      • Old Gator - Mar 30, 2014 at 11:29 AM

        No but, as usual, they made the kids sit in the back by the speakers.

      • edwardemanuelson - Mar 30, 2014 at 12:52 PM

        “He’s not done yet.”

        “Whaddya talkin about?! There’s nothin left on that plate but grisle and fat!”

    So much steak…lungs filling…sinuses packed with meat.

  6. twinfan24 - Mar 30, 2014 at 1:16 PM

    Take that vegetarians! If you want to be arguably the best young player, make sure you get some meat in your diet.

    By the way, I would hope Trout picked up the tab after signing his new deal.

  7. oztotten008 - Mar 30, 2014 at 2:13 PM

    Richards is lookin real classy in that white t, glad the boys dressed up for their big night out!

  8. nymets4ever - Mar 30, 2014 at 2:22 PM

    there are these things called vegetables

  9. shanabartels - Mar 30, 2014 at 10:06 PM

    I haven’t eaten meat in 12 and a half years. I do not understand the appeal of this stuff.

    • Old Gator - Mar 30, 2014 at 10:32 PM

      I have an iguana who feels exactly the same way.

      • shanabartels - Apr 1, 2014 at 6:15 PM

        I was about to ask you what iguanas eat, but I probably don’t want to know the answer.

    • strictlythedanks - Mar 31, 2014 at 12:17 PM

      cool story a hole

  10. AlmostForty - Mar 30, 2014 at 11:31 PM

    I’m confused. He’s never driven in 100! Steaks are for RBI guys!
