I thought that LaRussa's snub of Cueto was bad. However Ron Washington's snub or Weaver is even worse. He not only put Verlander as opener, followed by Price.
Washington selected Verlander over Angels ace and three-time All-Star Jered Weaver, last year’s starter. This season, Weaver is 10-1 with a major league-leading 1.96 ERA. He threw a no-hitter on May 2 but went on the disabled list with a lower back strain.
Weaver collected his fourth consecutive victory since coming off the disabled list with a three-hit shutout in eight innings of work on Saturday against Baltimore.
With the effort, Weaver joined Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax as only the second pitcher since 1950 to take 10-plus wins with an ERA under 2.00 to the All-Star break in consecutive seasons.
Bad show Ron Washington.
"With Weaver not starting I actually hope he does not go at all tonight so he can start friday in New York."
Don't count on it. I think Weaver WANTS to contribute in this game. He is a competitor.
Weaver on two days rest? Washington would be doing us a huge favor by not pitching Weaver at all.
CJ and Weaver would be fresh for this weekend against the Yankees. Good by me. the AS game is a joke anyway.
Thanks for the post telling Angels fans all this stuff they didn't already know.
Did you really think we were unaware of all of this?
Thanks so much for giving us Weaver's win/loss record and ERA. Without your info we wouldn't have known.
