The September 27th, 2012 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim including Weaver OK if Greinke gets paid more, Scioscia touts Weaver for Cy Young, Twins expected to target Santana and much more...

The Story: Jered Weaver has no problem with Zack Greinke earning more money than him if that is what it takes to re-sign him.

The Monkey Says: Good, because he may not have a choice.  Jered never seemed motivated by financial status anyway, which again is a good thing because Greinke could get as much as $40 million more than Weaver.

The Story: Mike Scioscia touts Jered Weaver for the AL Cy Young award.

The Monkey Says: Yeah, that probably isn't going to happen.  Weaver lacks the big shiny strikeout numbers and he isn't going to break the 200-inning mark, which is usually a deal-breaker.

The Story: The Minnesota Twins are expected to target Ervin Santana in free agency, assuming the Angels decline his option.

The Monkey Says: That didn't take long.  The day after news breaks about the Halos likely letting Ervin walk and already teams are circling.  That there is this kind of interest kind of makes me wonder if the Angels aren't better off picking up his option and then trying to trade him.

The Story: Yu Darvish will likely make his next start on Sunday against the Angels.

The Monkey Says: Darvish has been killing the Halos, so this is bad news, though there is a chance he could return to action before then.  That would still likely mean he'd face the Angels though, so it doesn't really matter.  Maybe the Angels will get lucky and he'll be off his game because of his neck problem.

The Story: Jason Isringhausen is leaning towards retirement because he misses his family.

The Monkey Says: That is a great reason to retire.  It is also very convenient because after how awful Izzy has been in the second half of the season, I can't imagine any team would be interested in his services next year.

The Story: A look at how Zack Greinke was so good in his 13-strikeout effort yet still gave up the runs that he did.

The Monkey Says: Greinke is one of those guys that will always be something of an enigma to analysts because he tends to do things a little differently and even has evolved his pitching style throughout the course of his career.  I just hope he continues to be puzzling in an Angels uniform for the next five or six years.
