Weaver failure has upside

While it sucks to watch Jeff Weaver explode, one upside is we don't have to argue about the team resigning him. Only a month ago I regularly got into arguments with readers who were convinced we HAD to resign Weaver. My brother was convinced he was one of the three starters the M's should rely on in a 5 game series.

I argued earlier in the year the team should dump him. I had to bite my tongue when he suddenly enjoyed success after the layoff. He has returned to the pitcher we saw in the first 2 months of the season, and the talk of resigning him has evaporated.

My brother no longer talks about Jeff Weaver.

The universe is returning to normal...
