Will they be willing to pay the kind of money it will take to give both of them contract extensions? Or will they only offer an extension to one of them? If so, will they keep Haren or Weaver?
As an Angels fan, I can only hope the two stars will wear Halos jerseys for years to come. The team’s offense is not what it used to be and the Angels need their arms to have a shot at the AL West.
But if they decide to only re-sign one of the two, who will they choose?
My guess is Weaver. Despite being a top pitcher, Haren is an MLB journeyman who has already played for four teams (Cardinals, Athletics, Diamondbacks, Angels). Weaver is younger, has strong Orange County ties and has been with the franchise since he was drafted in 2004.
If the Angels make the decision to not extend Haren, here are five trade packages that would make sense.
