    Grooooooooooooooooooooan.

    As long as he stays 3000 miles away, he can do whatever he wants with his career. Best of luck to him in a uniform that is NOT pinstriped!

    Good luck to him ... except for when the Yankees play the Dodgers next summer, of course!

    With the benefit of the Dodgers' superior infield defense, I predict that Weaver will begin to fulfill the potential he exhibited with the Tigers.

    I agree.

    Goodbye Gravy, Nash and Olson. You'll be missed.

    As do I, but infield defense doesn't really matter when the ball's hit over the fence. I gotta stop being negative about him though. He's the new Dodger I always forget about, probably on purpose, more of me blocking him out, and no matter how badly I wanna let him have it as a Yanks fan, I gotta pull for him as a Dodgers fan. I feel a lot of biting my tongue coming on.

    It will indeed be interesting to see where in the rotation he pitches. The Dodgers basically have 7 guys who are ready to start... maybe one of them can be part of a trade for a good bat. Too bad Odalis "D*mn there goes my no-hitter" Perez isn't worth a whole lot, as he's the guy I think they could afford to lose right now, skills-wise. We'll see. Eh... go Weaver.

    Good luck Jeff. I'm sure by the time most Dodger fans get to the game (4th inning or so) you'll already have hit the showers.
    Global Warming and climate change hysteria could well represent the historical pinnacle of collective insanity.

    That's all I have to say about that, Doug.

    Nah he'll do fine. ..but uh, that's what I said last year too. Maybe L.A. will let him re-grow his mullet.. I think the mullet was his real source of pitching prowess in Detroit. When the Yanks forced him to cut it, his pitching went down the drain.

    Weaver didn't give up many homers this year, and even though Yankee Stadium is a pitchers park, Dodger Stadium is an even better one plus he won't have the DH.

    EDIT: Now that I look at it, there was a lot more homers hit in Dodger Stadium than in Yankee Stadium this year. And a few more the year before.

    Never doubt the power of a mullet. I think he will actually do better this year.
