Mike Trout's Free Agency Price

Joe Sheehan Kevin Goldstein yesterday at BPro tallied Mike Trout's likely going price at $120M/8 years if he were magically to become a free agent. (No, this is not a news report. Stand down.) One nit I have with the article is this:
“The bidding would be insane because what team would not at least check in with all three of these guys' agents?” asked a National League official. “Wouldn't twenty-plus teams make serious offers and at least half the teams make competitive ones?
No, actually, they wouldn't. How many teams have a hole at CF? That's a serious question to answer before you go around making up economic scenarios. That said, I don't see the final bid arrived at above as too far removed from reality.
