Let's no forget that in 2006 (rookie year) he has 108 Ks in 123 innings. If, and I realize it might be a big if, he gets this 35 starts and 210-220 innings, the 2006 pace would give him about 180 Ks. I don't think it is fair to say he will NEVER be a big strikeout pitcher.

Oh, and to whoever commented about Lacky being the consistely great, healthy option.........oops.

would it be a bad idea to try to trade Chad Billingsley for Weaver. or is that too much of a risk?

I'm drafting tomorrow and currently have JWeave ranked 154 on my list. Do you think I should bump him up or down?

Another great outing for Weaver tonight... wrote:
Angels on the mound: Jered Weaver allowed one run in 6 1/3 innings, the longest outing by an Angels pitcher this spring. The only run came in the third inning, but Weaver stopped the Rangers' rally by striking out Josh Hamilton and Hank Blalock with the bases loaded. He allowed seven hits, walked one and struck out six.

I bumped him up to around 125, but I've been consistently picking him up in the 14th round of my drafts.

Honestly, there's a 50% chance that he is as valuable as Escobar or Lackey this season when you factor in the injury concerns and his own natural progression as a young pitcher. Remember, this guy was talked up as a No. 1 overall talent, falling only b/c of signing concerns thanks to the Great Satan (he calls himself Bo-Ras).
