Jered Weaver’s name continues to be thrown around in almost every MLB trade rumor.

The Angels are a confusing team right now. Looking at their payroll, you would think that they are built to win now. Looking at their lineup, you would think that they are built for the future.

While the Halos have several young prospects on the way up (Chatwood, Trumbo, etc.), they also have several stars on the decline (Wells, Hunter, Abreu).

Weaver is one of the few players on the team who is in the prime of his career and is contributing at a top-tier level.

Acquiring starting pitching is the easiest way to turn a good team into an immediate contender. In recent years, the Giants and Phillies have proven that.

While there is a lot of interest for Weaver, the Angels will not part with him easily. They are only one game back of the Rangers and might have what it takes to win the AL West.

To pick up the ace, teams will probably have to overpay. Here are seven teams that could give up too much to get Weaver.
