Weaver

Postby hawgvike » Sun Feb 22, 2004 1:24 pm

i took weaver late in my draft but im actually considering penciling him in as my 5th starter if he shows improvement this spring. i really like his 10-2 record against NL opponents and the fact that he's in the pitcher friendliest park in all of baseball. even though he has only a little run support, the fact that kevin brown had that same run support but still managed all those wins is encouraging. just lower yer era weaver, please!

Apparently Weaver, in working with Billy Connors (Yankees pitching coach) prior to the trade, found that his arm slot had fallen considerably from where it was when Weaver was most successful. I'm looking for a good comeback by Weaver....

Agreed. He's got a few things going for him:

1. Out of the NY "fishbowl".
2. New league - it may take time for hitters to figure him out.
3. Back home in California.
4. He's still plenty young.
5. Half of his starts will be in Chavez Ravine, favorable to Ps.

Weaver should be primed for a nice comeback, and may be a steal in some drafts.

in the 9th round, i missed the draft, and they comp took my first pitcher which was weaver... needless to say i did horrible in that league... i thought maybe he could lead my pitching staff... :-o

that didn't happen, but this year i am considering taking him, possibly to use in a trade half way through the year, when hitters start getting use to him...

It's all about confidence with Weaver. If he has it, he'll flourish. If not, he'll flounder.

I like Weaver....and he could be a good fifth starter....but his inconsistency can hurt....but like gecko said....confidence is his key.... :-)

I like this change for Weaver. I'd watched Weaver for a few years in Detroit and I had a feeling he would have a hard time in New York, just because of the way he is personality-wise (hopefully a few more seasons under his belt will toughen him up mentally). LA will be a good home for Weaver. He's a great young pitcher and I hope he has a great season.

I personally will be targeting Weaver in the late rounds.

I think he's the perfect high reward player because a lot of people are down on him but if he gets his head right he could flourish in LA.
