Jered Weaver Is Mr. Guts 2010
With his record hovering around .500 and the Angels seemingly unable to gain any ground on the Rangers in the division, there’s literally no chance for Jered Weaver to win the Cy Young award this season. However, the Angels ace is definitely worthy of some type of recognition.
Sure, he earned his first trip to the All-Star Game earlier this summer, but he didn’t get to pitch in the game. And with the Angels struggling to stay in the playoff race, Weaver hasn’t gotten many opportunities to showcase his stuff on national television, and that’s a shame.
So since there is no official award from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America that Weaver can win this season, I’m going to make one up. Let’s call it the Mr. Guts award.
