DateQuestionAnswer
2009-10-07 14:30:00 (link to chat)Dumbest Yankee playoff management decision: Jeff Weaver in extra innings of game 4 of the '03 World Series, with the greatest relief pitcher of all time sitting the bench.
(Ken_P from NY)
Certainly belongs in that discussion. The fact that it wasn't an elimination game might soften the blow a little, but damn, that was stupid. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Eric Milton replacing Jeff Weaver on the Dodgers roster one of the funniest transactions in recent memory?
(Fred from NJ)
Give it another couple of weeks, and I figure we might see Tom Niedenfuer. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is James MacDonald's future still as a solid rotation guy for the Dodgers, and if so, when do you think he'll get another crack? I agree that the Eric Milton/Jeff Weaver pas de deux is pretty humorous, but MacDonald was getting shelled.
(Chet from Charleston, S.C.)
True, he was, but I think it's interesting that the Dodgers would wind up with Milton or Weaver when better options have bobbed across the wire; I can't help but wonder if this isn't a failure at the top, because a club with LA's resources shouldn't overlook the opportunities to have added someone like Redding or Gaudin. Heck, where's Odalis Perez? Watching daytime television, right? (Christina Kahrl)
2008-06-17 15:00:00 (link to chat)As regards "figuring out the WHY," what's your take on why/how St. Louis is overperforming so much?
(Bill from New Mexico)
The Cards have done a great job with a rotation that's largely retreads, converted relievers, and booger-eating spazzes, guys like Braden Looper and Todd Wellemeyer into solid contributors. Credit Dave Duncan, who was able to get enough out of Jeff Weaver to bring home an unlikely World Championship while every other team that's had him since Detroit has been bitterly disappointed. The bottom line is that the Cards aren't beating themselves - they're second in the NL in fewest walks allowed even while running second-to-last in strikeouts.

The other thing that's noteworthy is the way Tony LaRussa has pieced together his outfield. I'm not the biggest TLR fan in the world, and I'm still a little skeptical that guys like Ryan Ludwick and Skip Schumaker can keep it up for a full year, but this is hardly the 70-something win team I foresaw.

2008-05-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Matt Morris is one of my HACKING MASS pitchers. Having gone "too much, too bad, too soon," is he going to stay retired or is someone going to make him an offer he can't refuse. (I'm afraid I know the answer).
(ekanenh from Exeter)
Someone's always going to kick the tires; we'll be seeing Jeff Weaver again, after all. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-03-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Likely to make an in-season roster?: Julio Franco, Jeff Weaver, Bonds, Clemens.
(Bill W from Brooklyn NY)
Still holding out hope for Bonds. Y'know, if the Mariners just got over themselves and plugged in Bonds for Vidro, they might actually be able to take advantage of the Angels' injuries. (Steven Goldman)
