    Evidently most teams think the same way the Cubs do. He doesn't have that many options for employment. I don't think the Cubs need him what so ever.

    you're not understanding the fact that a) we dont need weaver and b) we shouldnt want weaver. not even if he was 5 mil for 2 years. Just because you do (bad) choice 1, shouldnt mean you should do (worse) choice 2.

    Hes also had only 1 seaosn with an ERA under 4. We would be better off with Hill as a starter than Weaver.

    I like Miller too, when healthy, he comes right at the hitters. I don't think Weaver is all that good and wants way too much money for what he did so far in his career.

    Well, Jeff signed a 2 year / $8.4 mil. deal. I don't know why we can spend $2 mil. to keep Neifi but not go out and sign a top, or even decent free agent.
    He signed a one year $8.4M deal, not a two year deal.

    Wade Miller is a better pitcher and only cost $1M plus incentives. If he get's the incentives he will have outperformed Weaver. If he doesn't, it's because someone on the staff outpitched him.

    Weaver is the Darren Driefort of 2006.

    because he isnt a very good pitcher? he is a flyball pitcher and do we really want another one of those at wrigley?

    (hint: no we dont)

    It is good that we didnt sign him, unless he has a good year, and then it is bad.:atthepc

    I don't know why Cub fans fret so much about Boras. If you haven't noticed Hendry gets along fine with Scott "The Devil" Boras, definately better than most GMs do.

    That being said, he's still very likely to get Weaver a contract to his liking (probably not 10 million a year for 4 years) although it probably won't be where Jeff wants to go. And don't consider the Cubs a viable option.

    On a side bar, last year Weaver gave up the most homers to opposing pitchers in the MLB with three.

    Boras will bleed any team dry that goes after Weaver. His numbers in no way warrant $10m a year.

    because they can hang themselves and be forced to take a 1-year $2.95 million contract to reesatblish value...the thing that happened to Kevin Millwood last year.
