I hope they enjoy over-paying for a middle rotation talent. At least this means that there will be no more crazy talk about Weaver and the Tigers. Praise be to God.

Weaver agrees to $8.4 million, one-year contract Angels

February 15, 2006

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Right-hander Jeff Weaver and the Los Angeles Angels agreed Wednesday to an $8.4 million, one-year contract.

Weaver can earn an additional $600,000 in performance bonuses.

He went 14-11 with three complete games, two shutouts and a 4.22 ERA in 34 starts last season with the Dodgers. He was eighth in the NL in starts and innings (224) and sixth in complete games. He also had 157 strikeouts and 43 walks, a ratio of 3.65 that was eighth in the league.

He set career highs in wins, strikeouts and fewest walks, and tied his mark for starts.

Weaver also had a career-best six straight victories from July 22-Aug. 28 and pitched into the seventh inning in 18 consecutive starts from May 24-Aug. 28, another career high.

His younger brother, Jered, a former pitching star for Long Beach State, is a prospect in the Angels' organization.

The Angels cut loose two of their starters from last year, left-hander Jarrod Washburn and right-hander Paul Byrd.

Weaver has a 78-87 career record, with 13 complete games, five shutouts, two saves and a 4.44 ERA in 226 major league games, including 209 starts.

He pitched for the Tigers from 1999-2002, the New York Yankees from 2002-2003 and the Dodgers the past two seasons. He has appeared in the postseason twice, for the Yankees in 2002 and 2003, and the Dodgers in 2004.

One year 8.4 was way too much for Weaver... I was thinking he would be a nice pick up for 4-6 million a year... three years or so... we could have used him as a middle rotation guy, a set up guy... or maybe even a closer... the guy has some good stuff if he can re-gain his confidence... His biggest career mistake was going to NY too early... He wasn't confident enough to play for that organization yet...
