Jeff Weaver and Dodgers part ways and makes Weaver a free agent. Anyone think the Yankees would have any intrest in him? :eek:

Why? We already tried that experiment once.

Jeff Weaver back on the team would be the equivalent of Alan Embree back on the pitching staff.

There's a reason other teams haven't signed him yet.

:evil: I just thought if the Yankees showed intrest the Red Sox would jump in and take him and we could hit multi home runs off him.

I think this is the best thread started in the past 2 weeks. This time of the year is the dead zone for Yankee reading material and there are only 2 things that we can anticipate with bated breath:
1. Spring training
2. The next person to open a thread than we could actually get some laughs and chuckles from and I'm here to tell you that this one made me LMAO!!

Keep up the good work and here's a toast to the one that can top this one.

To Weavers credit, he didn't perform that bad in Los Angeles, but his 5.99 ERA while in NY is enough to make me wish there was some sort of permanent ban would could place on a player returning. Weaver won't be back this year, or for a long time, but you never know with Big Stein.

Because we already have 7 start pitchers, no room in the bullpen, and we have already tried this experiment before. It goes without saying, for the reasons listed above (and others) that we will not be making any move on Weaver. It's a waste of a thread.

I don't think I'm taking it to seriously, I just think this thread is a waste. If you want to talk about Jeff Weaver, then do so at your hearts content. But making a thread about him coming here is a waste, because there is less then 0% chance of it happening for several reasons.

01-09-06, 03:55 PM
Ask a silly question, get a silly answer:

A Jeff "White Flag" Weaver Yankee re-run is not only unlikely, it's technically illegal -- thanks to an obscure baseball rule which states that every homerun ball surrendered by a pitcher must land, before his former team can present an offer, or trade to bring that pitcher back to his former team. Several homerun balls coughed up by Weave when he was a Yank are currently orbiting Pluto, while two more recently entered Neptune's airspace, as another was lost near Uranus.

Speaking of Andy, anyone else remember the game in 1990 that he pitched against the White Sox in Chicago? He threw a no-hitter but because of errors, we lost the game 4-0. And to make matters worse, they later took away the no-hitter because he only threw 8 innings since the White Sox didn't need to play in the bottom of the 9th. I was there and I'll never forget that scoreboard at the end of the game. Yankees had 4 hits and 0 runs and the White Sox had 0 hits and 4 runs.

Anyways, it sure would make my username better if he came back and pitched well. But, in reality, there is just as much chance that the Yankees draft me and I pitch for them than Weaver comes back.

Hey gang, Shroud here. Like most of you, I too am embarrassed and disappointed in what is turning out to be one of the worst offseasons in Yankee history. Tino is gone, Bernie is long gone, Flaherty has been sacked, and now Flash is gone as well. And what did we get in return?? A pack of bubble gum and a used 10 speed with no chain. Now I for one am tired of seeing all of the NY legends leave, and there are still a few loose ends we need to tie up as the deadline for free agents nears. Well my major concern is making sure that we at least make an offer to one of our remaining free agent heroes, Jeff Weaver. Now I have heard all of the trash talk about how Jeff was horrible in 2003, etc, etc, etc, but I still cant find a better option out there for his going rate . Keep in mind that Jeff was hurt in 2003, but was a great help in 2005 with his numbers, not bad when you put it all together. If we really are going to go with Wang and Proctor as every day players, then we need a solid right handed arm in the rotation. We cant go with Clemens, or Beckett, and we sure dont want to try to resurrect Donovan Osborne so who else can we have a RHP??? Jeff Weaver is a proven warrior, a fighter, and a mentor to the younger players like Wang. He is in great shape, and my guess is that he's 100% from his most recent injury. With all of the uncertantities looming, all of the questions left unanswered, why not bring back something that already works? Like I said before, "If it aint broke, then why try to fix it" Jeff isnt finished just yet, so why not give him another shot? I really want to see him back in '06 as a player for the NY Yankees. We must not bring in another 29 yr old minor league player that has less than 2 yrs in the majors under his belt, and brings a 2.60 ERA to the table, when we have a 29 yr old with 6 yrs in the majors, and a heart that keeps on ticking. Please join this petition to Mr. Steinbrenner for the return of Jeff before its too late. We waited too long on Gordon, and he left, lets not do the same with Jeff. Thank you and God bless.

I also sugest we make a run for Felix Heredia his heart is also ticking...or something.

Amen to the sarcasm. I couldn't agree with you more. :2thumbs:

Why is it that some people feel the need to discuss every free agent or trade bait as an interest of NY? I thought George Steinbrenner was the only one that wanted every big name player in New York, regardless of how washed up or past their prime they were.

Weaver in particular is one face I would prefer to never have seen in pinstripes to begin with, much less for a second stint.

My one Jeff Weaver moment: I went to a couple games in 2003. One was this one: http://retrosheet.org/boxesetc/B06110NYA2003.htm

Weaver's terrible performance was only the second worst part of that game.

The more I think about the more I wouldn't mind Weaver back, especially with a new pitching coach and Kerrigan. Nobody can deny he has decent stuff. Maybe they'll be able to get him over the mental hump. I'm not sure Mel was very well equipped to do this, though Weaver *is* a project.
