I said it the other day in some other thread, and I'll repeat it here: If you had told me in May or June of this year that Jeff Weaver would be starting a playoff game this fall I'd have fallen off my chair laughing.

....that's right Link, Weaver just singled off of Glavine. The world is about to...ahh double play, nevermind.

Well there goes the chance for a no-no on either side.

I have to admit, even though I think the Mets are the better team, I'm hoping Weaver has a good game.

Tim Welke's strike zone stretches all the way to Brooklyn.

Post season numbers for Jeff Weaver:

2003-2005: 7.4 IP, 8 ER
2006: 8 IP, 0 ER.

7 You've got that low a number? Man, you must have gotten in on the bitterness early! Somewhere between 1964 and 1976? ;)

They were keeping track with an abacus, so the number reset after it hit 1 million.

I'd imagine Dodger fans are a bit bitter about Weaver, too...

There. Share in my pain.

Pujols doubled off on a shallow blooper that didn't find the turf. Ugh.

7 - no reason to be bitter, it's not like he's pitching in a GOOD league or anything...

It's when Weaver gives up homeruns to the opposing pitcher that my attitude on him sours.

After reading at the D's sight that Kent says he wants 6to comeback, I will deeply resent it if either Nomar or Kent prevents Loney from getting a clear shot at first base. I am very serious.

T.McCarver - ... "Molina's best stance, is squatting" - uncomfortable silence ensues, then McCarver tries to recover.
Somebody help me out of my misery.

My roomie just checked the weather.com temp tracket and it is 36 degrees on the other side of our no-longer-open window.

Meanwhile who knew the Weave had this kind of outing in him??

19 - I've always thought Weaver had good stuff, but needed somebody else to help him stay within himself. New York ruined him.

i find my self angry at the moment, i can't root for NY sorry. 2-0 Mets.

all in all you have to like Weaver's effort one bad pitch dons't spell a bad performance.imo.

17 Blast. I was hoping his terribe regular season would allow the Dodgers to bring him back cheap.

Resigns to look for other opportunities ……. Hmm I cant help thinking that had DePodesta still been the GM that this, along with Collins leaving, would generate quite a bit of bad press.

Also how often does one quit without having a job lined up.... odd.

30 - "Also how often does one quit without having a job lined up.... odd. "

I've done it ... let's see ... once, twice, three times, do I need to go on?

Jeff Weaver: It's not "if," but "when and how bad." That's how one sports analyst describes Weaver's propensity to blow up in a game. It might have been only one bad pitch last night, but you knew that bad pitch was coming, and it was bad enough to lose the game. If the game required two bad pitches from Weaver to lose the game, he would have served up two.
