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.
