Jeff Weaver - I think I have him figured out

He is Nuke Laloosh. The more he thinks the worse he is. I'm watching him in the Dodger's game. And when he's rolling along, he doesn't waste time, he doesn't wave off the catcher, he just pitches... and being in the NL, hitting means he doesn't have to sit on the bench all the time thinking about the last or next inning.

So does that mean he does worse when he gets a lot of run support (thus taking longer between innings)? <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif>

They should give him a playstation in the dugout.... I've seen him pitch great and pitch horrible in many games, and the difference always is, you can tell he's thinking when he's doing badly and is aware of the score, aware of everything, he appears distracted and sulking, when he pitches good, he catchs the ball, get on the rubber, reads the sign and pitches it... It's like he's on autopilot. As soon as he starts thinking, look out.

I'm not saying he's dumb or anything.. I was the same way as a hitter. When I was "see the ball hit the ball" I was fine, if I starting thinking, I was in trouble.
