Where is Jeff Weaver going to sign?

If he goes to the Halos, I'd be very interested. The Yankee implosion has had an unrealistic effect on his value, imo.

While he's not a star by any means, I don't think he's a staff killer either. I'd take him as a fifth starter.

I don't mind him. He is a better option at number 4 or 5 than the Angels currently have. My only hangup is in regards to the size of the contract they give him.

From what I have heard is that its a 2 year contract at a home value with incentives. I have no problems with incentives because he would deserve the money if he performs.

Take this however you want:

Pitcher Jeff Weaver is an Angel. The ink is dry.

No specifics, but I got a call from my most trusted source saying all the rumors are true, the hometown discount applies (albeit with an incentive-laden two-year deal) - that the geography won out for the Halos and the older brother of Jered told BoBo Boras to back off.

You will hear about Monday everywhere else as Stoneman scrambles over the weekend to adjust the 40-Man roster.

UPDATE: Let this strengthen suspicions about the Manny trade being on the front burner.
Kelvim Escobar, Steven Shell and Juan Rivera to Boston is the latest...
