Angels, Weaver talking extension
Angels owner Arte Moreno, meeting with reporters on Wednesday during Vernon Wells’ introduction to media and fans, said that contract extensions talks have begun with Jered Weaver’s camp, headed by Scott Boras.
Weaver, an All-Star for the first time in 2010 while leading the Majors in strikeouts, has requested $8.8 million in salary arbitration, with the Angels offering $7.3 million. If they can’t come to an agreement, it goes to arbitration for a settlement.

What happened during the Teixeira negotiations that Arte won’t talk to Scott Boras? Tex didn’t want to stay in So Cal. What can you do other than boo him every time he comes to bat in Anaheim? It worked out in the end. The Angels are not burdened with Tex’s contract. Kendry Morales was a very capable replacement and younger. I don’t know if the exact draft pick compensated from the Yankees for signing Tex allowed them to select Trout, but if it did, there’s another plus.
Why would a smart business man who earned millions by making smart, calculated, non-emotional decision take a player or agent’s business decision so personally? Is it worth losing Weaver and Morales? If it is, what is it? If not, let it go. I don’t like Boras either, but if that’s the person players want representing them, what can you do?
PAY HIM !SIGN HIM! WE WANT TO KEEP HIM! AND IM PRETTY SURE HE WANTS TO STAY
Please extend him so he can be a lifetime Angel.
i agree 99, however tex used Moreno to drive up his pay amount from the Yanks. He never wanted to play on the West Coast. I’ll still boo him just the same. of course i won’t boo napoli.
The Angels need a franchise player, and who better. Would love to see Weaver end his career with the Angels. Need to leave some money for Morales in a couple of years.
Resign Weaver now ! give him what he wants resign weaver now ! I don’t care what it is just get the deal done ! Please resign weaver !
