Jer.Weaver out after 6, only down 1...?

Postby dlw23 » Thu Aug 24, 2006 11:52 pm

Weaver was pulled down 1-0 after the sixth inning while allowing 1 runs on only 4 hits from the Red Sox? Seems kinda early... I can't watch the game, but I was wondering why he got pulled? Hurt, pitch count, etc...?

Anyone watching have any idea?

Definitely pitch count. Unless Boston pitchers give up 2 ER, Weaver will have his first loss of the season.

Either pitch count or Scioscia had 6 innings as a cap no matter what. Seemed to still have some gas in the tank to me. That was the most aggressive I've ever seen Weaver pitch. He usually likes to nibble a little more versus weaker hitters with nobody on, and pitch around Pappi (like the first at bat) which cost him the 1 run but maybe he just wanted to give the Sox a different look since he just faced them.

Great outing though... Since my league counts K, ERA and WHIP besides Win, I'll take it.

Great outing. Can't expect too much more from the kid. The loss is irrelevant.

It was definately Pitch count!.. He was PISSED that he was outta the game after pitching a six inning gem of a performance. He slammed his glove off the bench and stormed back into the club house. He probably coulda gone 2 more but woulda been risky with him already being at 107!.. good outting
Thanks, Will Help in Return

It was very strange performance, easily the most aggressive outing I've seen as far as not nibbling the corners, yet he didn't hit the fatigue wall, which usually you can see coming around pitch 90 then at 95 to 105 bam, he can't locate. But I didn't sense that at all this game. I got the sense he had at least one more inning in him, maybe more. I know it's counterintuitive for his age and pitch count, but I really think maybe Beckett's stallar performance was giving Weaver a little extra boost out there.
