The Angels are in first place!! I'm sorry but given the way the season has gone that is nothing short of a miracle. They can't hit, the bullpen has been a work in progress and their fifth starter is barely legal to drink, but they are still two games ahead of the A's and the Rangers. How have they done it? Because of the greatness of Jared Weaver. There was a time not long ago when people wondered what the Angels were going to do without a legitimate #1 starter to anchor the staff. Well those days are long gone my friends. Weaver has been one of the game's elite and is currently the Cy Young frontrunner. The only thing that has slowed him down this year was a case of the stomach flu that caused him to lose 8 pounds. Even then he battled the Red Sox in his last start. So all hail the Weave, may we sign him to a long term contract extension before Lucifer Boras talks to the Yankees.
