How Long Before Jeff Weaver Gets Cut?

As far as dog shit pitching goes, Jeff Weaver is coming as close as you can get. And yes, I have the right to say this because I am an Angels fan and experienced exactly what Mariners fans are going through right now. In 2006, while getting paid over $8 million, Weaver went 3-10 with a 6.29 ERA in 16 starts, allowing opponents to hit .309 against him. Yes, .309, not a typo. Then he gets cut and picked up by the Cards where he became a World Series hero. So being this pitcher-shortened day in age, Jeff Weaver got signed to another one year deal, for a little over $8 million again. So let me break this down for you in simple chat room form: Jeff Weaver is getting paid multiple million dollars to get his head beat in. Witness his first four starts of the year:

  1. 2 INN, 7 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, Mariners lose 14-3. Weaver 0-1, ERA 31.50
  2. 6 INN, 7 ER, 1 BB, 3 Ks, Mariners lose 11-1. Weaver 0-2, ERA 15.75
  3. 3 INN, 3 ER, 7 BB, 0 BB, 3 Ks, Mariners lose 6-1. Weaver 0-3, ERA 13.91
  4. 0.1 INN, 6 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, Mariners lose 8-3. Weaver 0-4, ERA 18.26

Fuck it, Hargrove might as well just call in a forfeit ahead of time on Weaver’s turn in the rotation and spare his bullpen the work. Which brings me to … the when will Jeff Weaver get cut? Gentlemen…place your bets

When will that turd Jeff Weaver get cut?
Once he hits 0-10
When his weed stash is lower than his ERA
Never, he’ll turn it around

    i believe in proper baseball parlance the term is ‘horseshit’

    we’re all in agreement that the lean free agent market translated to big money for average (or in his case well below average) talent on the hill. he’s been at BEST horribly inconsistent (and more accurately just plain horrible) for a long time. while i agree with you 100% that the guy is a zero, this is really not all that surprising. he ran into a couple decent starts in the post season last year, but he did cough up the only L of the world series for the cardinals. larry, you are the man. and so is my brethren guy who posts blog responses in the middle of a workday. and yes, jeff weaver is horseshit.

    i honestly cant stand the fact that this guy still has a job. calling weaver st louis’ hero is like calling oliver perez new york’s hero. horse. shit.

    Yes, horseshit, I stand corrected. And Dale, you’re exactly right. If there actually were a decent pitching market around here, teams wouldn’t be throwing millions at pitchers who have never thrown in America (e.g. Yanks and Kei Igawa, who?).

    Oh, what I would do for a 90mph fastball…

    he’s as bad as a horse shitting out a dog…

    Maybe it’s because I don’t like the Angels but like the Dodgers, so maybe I’m alone here, but I love Jeff Weaver.

    Nothing made me happier than when we dumped Kevin Brown’s 40 year-old ass on the Yankees where he went on to suck and be hurt. Meanwhile, the old Weave-Weave turned in two quality seasons. Thank you, Dan Evans, that almost makes up for signing Rickey Henderson.

    He may be trash now and last season but…yeah horseshit pretty much sums it up.

    Alan 1, your not alone. I love Jeff Weaver as well. He’s one of my favorite pitchers of all time. I was bummed, when the Tigers traded him.
