  • Goodbye to Weaver

    http://interestalert.com/story/sitei...ilter=Baseball

    Could Clemens be a Dodger in '06?
    Is Josh Fogg worth pursuing?
    Might the Dodgers find another diamond in the rough from NPB a la Nomo?

    Time will tell . . . but pitchers and catchers report in about 35 days, so Mr. Colletti needs to get with the program and find The Blue a 5th SP.

    isn't Jae Seo the 5th SP?

      Weaver will be missed. I saw him pitch many many times in his 2 years here so he leaves me with many memories. Giving up a grand slam in the first inning & giving up homeruns to opposing pitchers (and the rest of the world), to going 8 Innings while batting in 3 runs & striking out 10 opposing Roger Clemens. Good luck, Weaver!

        Alledgedly, but I'd love to pick up someone of Weaver's quality to replace him and then let Seo work from the pen. No fault on Seo, as I feel he's a solid addition, but he not the same as Weaver. Yes, Jeff was frustrating to watch at times, but he is a worker, and was always capable of going deep into the game. Oh well, maybe we do already have our rotation set. Time will tell if Colletti agrees.

          Good luck Weavie!

          I heard from a poster in the Dominican Republic that Brazo has blown 5 saves and Licey relieved him of the closer role.

            Weaver had a good year for us, but if we had signed him long-term, I kept envisioning a Darren Dreifort-type disaster. Weaver is too inconsistent year to year, and not a big game pitcher. Seo should be a decent 5th SP.
            "... then you would run for Gibson and have Sax batting. But, we have a big 3-2 pitch coming here from Eckersley. Gibson swings, and a fly ball to deep right field! This is gonna be a home run! Unbelievable! A home run for Gibson! And the Dodgers have won the game, 5 to 4, I don't believe what I just saw!"

              That game against Clemens was the 1955 celebration day. What a great day that was. One that I will always remember seeing the Boys of Summer on the field while Vinnie broadcast the celebration from his shrine. The minute I enter the stadium I heard Vinnie's voice practicing for the game. I was there with my 1955 t-shirt and my brother with his Brooklyn hat. I looked around and there were more people wearing Brooklyn gear. A friend of mine took his dad to the game and he said he will always cherish that day. My friend Linda and Harpo came from San Diego and brought one of their friends that remembers seeing Jackie Robinson play at Ebbets. Prior to the game I was talking to my friend Linda on the cell phone, they were on an upper level and I was in the field level. The old timer friend from Brooklyn was amazed at technology as Linda and I were talking and waiving at each other as I spotted them upstairs. I will always cherish that day.
