Out of those you mentioned, I like Weaver the best.
Weaver might be the worst pitcher on that whole list
Dodger Stadium can't even help him
Weaver is nowhere close to the worst pitcher on that list. Even with those very pedestrian ERA and WHIP numbers, he still owns a 3/1 K/BB ratio. He's striking out the same number of batters as he did last year, and he's walking less. His LD% is almost exactly the same as last year. He's got a 1.13 GB/FB ratio, which is even better than his ratio last year. The only thing that's worse this year is his HR/9, and that's more than likely going to drop to right around 1 (his career HR/9 is 0.9)
Weaver posted a 4.01 ERA last year and was 2nd behind Randy Johnson in total quality starts, and if he keeps up these peripheral numbers, he should at least meet his 2004 numbers (if not improve on them) from here on out. He pitches in Dodger Stadium, and he's got a decent offense behind him with a quality bullpen (even without Gagne). Given all those factors, I like Weaver the best out of everybody on that list.
