I didn’t realize this, but Jered Weaver won the strikeout title last year in the AL. I think it’s safe to say that he’s getting into territory of late 90′s Pedro Martinez here pretty soon.
He struck out 15 Blue Jays yesterday in 7 and 2/3 innings. He’s now 3-0 on the season with a 0.87 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP. That’s pretty.
He’s reminding me a little bit of Ubaldo Jimenez’s start last season. Winning 20 games could be imminent as long as the Angels continue to give him any semblance of run support and the bullpen tandem of Fernando Rodney and Jordan Walden don’t blow to many leads that he turns over to them.
Right now if your team is the unfortunate group that happens to draw this baddest bull at the rodeo, you’re in for a short ride.
