At the end of the 2016 season, Jered Weaver’s contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will expire, and it could very well mean the end of Weaver’s illustrious career.  He has provided Angel fans with a decade full of highlights and is clearly one of the best pitchers the franchise has ever had.  I’m hoping that he he can find the magic again and can turn in one last, great...
