Josh Hamilton Signs Two-Year Deal with Rangers, Avoids Arbitration

I think this is a very good move for the Rangers locking up Hamilton for the next 2-years for a very reasonable $12 million per season.

Young and the Rangers seem destined for an unhappy marriage in 2011 as more and more teams fall off the list of possible trade destinations.

Jered Weaver Loses Salary Arbitration Hearing to Angels

I was wrong on this one. I really thought Weaver had posted numbers that would convince the arbiter his $8.8 million request was justified.

Jered Weaver & Angels Go to Salary Arbitration

February 9, 2011

The Press-Enterpise is reporting Jered Weaver and the Angels have gone to salary arbitration. Weaver is asking $8.8 million and the Angels are offering $7.365 million.

In five seasons with the Angels, Weaver has posted a 64-39 record with a very respectable 3.55 ERA and 1.205 WHIP.

With the going to rate for quality starters well over $10 million per season Weaver seems likely to be awarded the $8.8 million in my opinion.

The arbiters decision is expected on Thursday.
