Weaver vs. Contrereas

I have Weaver. Should I drop him for Contrereas? I am finding it hard convincing myself to drop a Yankee starter.

I wouldn't do it until it's announced that Contreras has bumped Weaver out of the rotation. Given Weaver's horrible performance lately, it's probably only a matter of time, and the Yankees aren't giving Contreras 7 million to be a long reliever.

Jose Contreras has wicked stuff. I'm not sure he's had some struggles. I'd take Contreras over Weaves.

Drop Weaver. He's been terrible since coming to the Yankees. 4+ era last year and 5+ era this year. Good riddance.

I watched Contreras pitch 4 innings yesterday against the Jays and he looked positively electric. I think that alot of the problems he has had so far have to do with not being used to coming out of the bullpen, and never having pitched in relief in Cuba. Once he gets into the starting rotation, I think he has the potential to have Hideo Nomo-type success.

Weaver is pitching against the Tigers next so hold onto him until then. I wouldn't drop Weaver unless they actually announce something. If he doesn't bounce back after that series, then I think Weaver will be bumped for Contreras.
