Forget all that talk about Weaver not being a gamer. Wow.

Big props to Weaver but Duncan deserves a lot of credit too.

Duncan deserves a ton of credit. No doubt. But for Weaver to step up like, whoa, that was unbelievable. He has forever changed his image. The guy goes 8 innings, Ks 9 guys, BBs 1, while only giving up 4 hits. That was an insanely great night.

I think Weaver just earned a multi-year deal with the Cards.

We'll see. Jocketty is more frugal than most GM's plus Suppan is a FA too.

The Cards and Weaver deserve a bunch of credit but if Detroit didn't pee down there leg and give a half A$$ performance........ that was an ugly Series!! :-P

I predict this will be the Cards rotation in 2007...

Carpenter RHP
Weaver RHP
Mulder LHP
Reyes RHP
Wainwright RHP (if Izzy starts the year as closer)

I guess Suppan and Weaver could be interchanged. Weaver might be more expensive at 30 with Boras as his agent but he was DFA this year. Suppan is 31 but doesn't have close to dominating stuff. I really think Mulder (29) is better than he pitched this year and is a lefty that could come cheaper with more potential than anybody on the FA market. So who knows?

i think soup will be back. he is a smart guy so he knows he is in a good situation in STL. he seems like the type that would take a little less or defer money to stick around.

i am not sure what weaver will do. his situation is kind of similar to derek lowe in 2004. i think weaver would like to stick around. the question is whether or not he is willing to take a little less than top dollar to stay. boras clients tend not to sign for less than top dollar.
