BASEBALL: End of the Line for Weaver?

It's starting to look even grimmer than in recent years for Jeff Weaver, who dropped to 0-6 today and actually lowered his ERA (to 14.32) by allowing 6 runs on 10 hits in 5 innings. In 22 innings pitched this season, Weaver has allowed 50 hits. Pitching in Seattle he can't blame the New York press anymore; he's just not getting outs.

Don't ask that question. There's no answer, only pain.

This is what happens when you only look at the money. He had found a comfort zone in St. Louis with Duncan, but chose to take more money in Seattle. My understanding is that the Cards have tried to help him from afar, without success.

35-38 career in the NL; 51-69 career in the AL. Prediction: Seattle actually cuts him and eats his $8 million contract and he gets picked up by a contender in the NL (Brewers?) on the cheap and actually pitches decently. The National League: The place crappy pitchers go to pitch well and get a nice paycheck.
