Los Angeles Angels: Two crucial offseason moves

The Los Angeles Angels had a very successful year. They came in first place in the AL West after finishing third in 2013 with a record under .500. The improvements the team made were so substantial that you could call the Angels “The 2014 Comeback Team of the Year”. However, despite their success, a first round exit against the Kansas City Royals is unacceptable. It is crucial...

Questioning Jered Weaver’s 2014 season

Jered Weaver somehow had one of the worst season of his career and gave us hope for his future all at the same time. How did he do that? No, seriously, I’m asking you how he did that. Is everyone aware that Jered Weaver isn’t an ace anymore? That’s easy: no. I wrote about how he isn’t an ace anymore earlier in the year and didn’t exactly receive a lot of warm responses...

Angels win; keep fingers crossed for Jered Weaver

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Fingers are crossed. If the Angels are lucky, nothing is seriously wrong with Jered Weaver. If there is, it could be a worrisome loss. On a night of historic importance for the franchise, Weaver tweaked his lower back in the second inning of the Angels' 5-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. He was forced to exit before the start of the third inning, but there...

Jered Weaver leaves game with lower back tightness

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Angels pitcher Jered Weaver left Monday night's game against the Toronto Blue Jays after two innings because of what the team said was "lower back tightness."

Angels ace Weaver 'not worried' about forearm tightness

The forearm tightness that forced Jered Weaver to be scratched from Friday night's start was not severe enough to warrant an MRI test, and the Angels ace expects to pitch Wednesday against Oakland. The tightness is on the outside of the forearm and inside of the elbow. It would be a bigger concern if it was on the inside of the forearm, where the ulnar collateral ligament is...

Why I’m a Weaver Believer

I had a recent conversation with a fantasy baseball colleague on the value of Jered Weaver. We disagreed on his value, but only briefly got to talk about him — maybe a jab here and jab there, but I wasn’t satisfied so I figured I would take it outside…and by outside I mean this article.In my opinion, a surprising number of people out there think that it is just CRAZY to believe...
