Daily Links for the LA Angels including Heyman doubts the Angels can keep Weaver, Locker goes high in the NFL draft, Scioscia tries to temper expectations for the youngsters and much more...
The Monkey Says: This is just the stupid national media not knowing much about the Angels. Heyman says the Halos have a history of letting their own top free agents "get away." More like walk away, Jon. Seriously, who have they lost that they wished the had kept? Figgins? Nope. Lackey? Nope. K-Rod? Probably not because of his attitude. Glaus? Maybe, but hardly a big regret. The Angels are smart and they will have the money to keep Weaver if they really want to. The only real obstacle I see is their tumultous relationship with Scott Boras.
The Monkey Says: So much for him possibly sliding and reconsidering a baseball career. Now the Halos will have to hope he flames out quickly in the NFL instead.
The Monkey Says: I hope the Halos listen to their own advice too. Let's not forget how much they overrated Erick Aybar after one good season and how they maintained high expectations for Brandon Wood even after the evidence started mounting against him.
