I think the brother factor makes the Angels reluctant to trade Jeff Weaver, that and the fact that not many teams are going to want his salary for a #5 starter. I think the ANgels signed Jeff so that when they drafted Jered, he'd be inlcined to sign.

In a few years, trading Jeff probably won't effect Jered, but for a rookie, it might cause problems...

Besides, Jeff has actually looked better and better ever since Jered showed up. Maybe getting shown up by his little brother was just the thing he needed.

Jeff has had the curse of great expectations unmet for most of his career. Detroit started him way too young but he flirted with good stuff, and when he went to Yankees, the thinking he was on the verge of greatness, didn't happen.... but then unnoticed, he actually put together two pretty solid years in LA., but was hampered by low run support and occassional mental lapses where a bad homer or inning would distract him and he didn't recover.

But I'm noticing he's shaking off those bad mistakes and getting back to what he was doing right more and more.

Just wanted to mention that Peter Gammons just said that the Crawford/Santana deal is probably not going to happen because the "Devil Rays want a whole lot more than Santana and the Angels aren't willing to give that". Take it for what it's IS Peter Gammons here...but the fact the the DRays want more than Santana is both predictable and in line with what we've discussed. Maybe the Angels really are balking at the idea of giving up Wood or Kendrick along with Santana. Maybe the DRays are asking for Wood AND Kendrick. Not sure on that part but the news doesn't sound good for anyone involved as a deal would be great for pretty much everyone's keeper value, the short and long term futures of both teams and the current year's fantasy value for everyone involved except for Santana (I think it hurts him a tiny bit this year).
