Can Jered Weaver silence AL hitters and Scott Boras? Can we get this guy to take a look at the economy? A Boras client, Weaver is reportedly set to sign a five-year, $85 million extension with the Angels. But if the club's long-term future looks bright, the short-term outlook is less clear. Despite bouncing back from a funk with four wins in a row, the Angels are four games out in the AL West. Rank 'Em: Your MLB Power Rankings.
Was there a hometown discount?
A local kid who went to Long Beach State, Weaver could have tested free agency after next season. Did he cut the Angels a break by taking this extension?
Jered Weaver or Clayton Kershaw?
Weaver is riding high, but he's also 28 years old. Would Clayton Kershaw, 23, be a safer investment with a 3.01 ERA in 109 career starts for the Dodgers?
