Jered Weaver doesn’t worry about money left on table

The words “free agency” had barely left a reporter’s mouth before Jered Weaver shot back.

“I don’t give a . . .” Weaver said. “You can quote me on that.”

Actually, you can’t, at least not in a family newspaper.

Weaver wanted no part of any of the questions — whether he enjoyed a winter without the hassles of free agency, whether he had any second thoughts about his decision to pass up free agency, whether he might have thought differently had he known the Dodgers would emerge from bankruptcy as baseball’s biggest ATM.

...Turns out that Weaver left about $60 million on the table, given the $147-million contract the Dodgers gave Zack Greinke last winter and the $144 million the Philadelphia Phillies gave Cole Hamels last summer.

Weaver, 30, posted a 51-25 record and 2.73 earned-run average over 6482/3 innings the last three seasons. Hamels, 29, was 43-26 with a 2.97 ERA over 640 innings in that span. Greinke, 29, was 41-25 with a 3.83 ERA over 604 innings.

Thanks to Reese.
