The Jered Weaver fan club starts now

Postby johnsamo » Fri Jun 02, 2006 10:13 pm

2 great starts under his belt... He made the Good Indian bats look pretty mediocre. The two runs were dinks in the 7th when he had a 10 run lead. I like how he hides the ball in his windup and changes his speed and release point a lot. I don't think he threw one single fat pitch right down the middle. He nibbled the corners, up and down, in and out, a good slider that he occassionally throws, and 2 versions (varies the speed) of his 4 seamer and 2 seamer fastballs. I'm not sure he has a change up, but when you've basically got four different fastballs that vary in speed and movement, you don't really have to have a changeup. And he can throw them all for strikes, so it's hard to guess what he's going to throw and where he's going to throw it. That and he rarely gets into hitter counts.

Long term, the good news is he's mostly throwing those different fastballs, and doesn't go to the slider a lot... That's a good sign for for his long term endurance and makes him less likely to have shoulder/elbow problems...

Yep, he looks like the real deal. I guess the real question at this point is what are they going to do when Fatolo Colon comes back.....is Weaver going to be sent down? I'm hoping they trade older Weaver before then, but i'm not sure how much trade value he really has at this point.

Man... it's a sticky situation there in ANA. A problem that a lot of clubs would like to have, though. They've got four pitchers quality pitchers and now a young kid who looks like he's the real deal. I certainly hope Jered stays up... lord knows my team with Harden and Sheets on the DL needs more starts like tonight!
Is there anything fluffier than a cloud?
If there is, I don't want to know about it.

Ervin Sanatan is a quality pitcher?...I must have missed that memo.

His stats didn't show up in Yahoo for my team (yes I own Jered and not Jeff ;-) ). Still shows zeroes for him after tonight's game.

I'm assuming that Yahoo will correct that overnight?
