The February 25th, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Weaver "doesn't give a (expletive)" about lost money, Burnett and Madson to ramp up throwing programs and much more... The Story: Jered Weaver "doesn't give a (expletive)" about the money he left on the table when signing a contract extension. The Monkey Says: He has certainly suggested he feels this way before, but never in quite so, um, colorful language. You stay classy, Jered. The Story: Sean Burnett and Ryan Madson will both be stepping up their throwing on Monday. The Monkey Says: Burnett is supposed to throw for the first time since tweaking his back and he isn't too concerned about lost progress since his layoff was so short. As for Madson, he'll be throwing on consecutive days for the first time, but still seems far off from throwing off a mound. The Story: Mike Scioscia called playing split squad games on the first day of spring training, "Absurd." The Monkey Says: He also said, "It makes no sense." Those are some awfully big words coming from a guy who spent several seasons playing Jeff Mathis over Mike Napoli. You really want to talk about things that make no sense, Mike? Glass houses, my friend. The Story: None of the projected member of the Angels rotation will appear in spring games until March. The Monkey Says: Don't be alarmed, this is just how they are choosing to handle the staff in light of the extended spring training schedule. It seems they've elected to make sure nobody gets overworked. The Story: A look at the best individual defensive season performance for each franchise. The Monkey Says: Erstad actually had the best season of anyone listed, yet for some reason he was only mentioned in the sidebar, which is kind of weird. The Story: Going into the season, the Angels have the fourth-hardest schedule. The Monkey Says: A lot of this has to do with the AL West, which I am not convinced will be as strong this year, so take that rating with a grain of salt. The Story: The Angels are introducing dynamic pricing for single-game tickets. The Monkey Says: This sounds innovative, but it also sounds like it could blow up in their face. It will likely lead to more filled seats against teams like the Astros, but it could also lead to die-hard fans getting squeezed out of games against Texas, Boston and the Yankees in favor of people who simply have a fatter checkbook. The Story: Howie Kendrick talks about the expectations of winning a batting title. The Monkey Says: This is like taking a defibrillator to a dead horse so that people can start beating it all over again. Thanks, Howie. The Story: Jerome Williams is not taking a roster spot for granted. The Monkey Says: Given his career path, I don't blame him. I also am not so sure that he isn't going to get traded so that the Halos can keep Garrett Richards around as their swingman instead. The Story: Garrett Richards is just hoping for a consistent role with the team. The Monkey Says: On one hand, I think he makes a good point about how getting shuttled between the rotation, bullpen and minors can cause inconsistency, but on the other hand, I kind of feel like he should probably just shut up about it and not do anything to contribute to the rumor that he has an attitude problem. The Story: Barry Enright thinks his restored delivery can make revive his career. The Monkey Says: Naturally, Enright went on to get shelled in his start over the weekend. There is still plenty of time for him to turn things around but this had to be a blow to his burgeoning confidence. [follow]
