Halos Lock Up Their Ace

Jered Weaver And Angels Agree To 5 Year 85 Million Dollar Deal


The Angels and ace pitcher Jered Weaver came to terms on a 5 year 85 million dollar contract extension over the weekend. The deal which includes a full no trade clause will ensure Weaver mans the mound for the Halos through the  2016 season and avoids free agency after next season (shocking for a Scott Boras client.)

Props to Weaver for doing the right thing and staying home. The Angels now have their big three of Weaver, Haren and Santana locked up through the 2013 season. That is a solid front three and IF the Angels can manage to improve offensively they should remain competitive for the foreseeable future.

Well done gents.
