Angels Ace Sent Down To AAA
John Klima of The Daily Breeze today said it all:
They sent Jered Weaver, the rookie right-hander who won all four of his decisions and posted a 1.37 ERA, helping to stabilize the pitching staff of the last-place team in the AL West, to triple-A Salt Lake.
LAist wonders, why wasn't it brother Jeff Weaver, with his sorry-ass 3-9 record and who gave up a team-leading 17 home runs. Dudes it was JEFF Weaver who's ERA is a bloated and unnacceptable 6.02, which is only overshadowed by the obscenely high $8.5 million that the Angels paid for this perennially overrated pitcher. Jeff Weaver's lifetime record of 81-96 and 4.52 ERA stays, and Jered Weaver's perfect 4-0 and 1.37 goes so as to make room for Bartolo Colon.
The only way that this makes any sense is if the Halos are in the works to deal Jeff and that contract out of town and are praying that he improves his numbers before they pull the trigger.
Until then, we pity the fools in AAA who now have to face one of the best young arms in baseball. At least now he will have time to start playing the gutair.
