EOB Podcast: Jered Weaver goes down

By Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

In this episode of the podcast, Chris and Matt discuss injuries to Jered Weaver and Jason Motte, and how they will impact the Angels and Cardinals. They also discuss the Nationals and general manager Mike Rizzo.

  • From the beginning: Weaver will miss at least four weeks with a broken non-pitching elbow. How concerned are we about the injury? What should the Angels do to replace him? (We also go off on a tangent about R.A. Dickey.)
  • 13:30: Motte could miss a significant amount of time this season. Is this a major problem for the Cardinals? Can either Mitchell Boggs or Trevor Rosenthal fill in?
  • 18:30: The Nationals are reportedly discussing an extension with Rizzo. We outline what we like about the Rizzo regime.
  • 30:00: Stephen Drew is set to return Wednesday. Is he a significant upgrade over Jose Iglesias?
  • You can listen to the podcast in our popout player, which can be found here.
  • We would also encourage you to subscribe to the podcast in iTunes, and be sure to let us know what you think.
  • This episode of the podcast runs a little over 35 minutes.
  • Questions, comments, concerns? Let us know about them.
