A couple more victories and Jered Weaver's going to be in Face territory. And maybe later, Gator country. Weaver goes for victory No. 16 against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday. He's 15-1 with an earned-run average of 2.13, leading the American League in ERA and tied with Tampa Bay's David Price for the league lead in victories. Weaver is tied for the second-best single-season winning percentage in history (.938, with the Cleveland Indians' Johnny Allen, who went 15-1 in 1937). The champion of this odd statistic is Roy Face, who went 18-1 for the 1959 Pittsburgh Pirates.
Weaver is closing in on the highest-ever winning percentage in a season
