Then Trade Him Back to Us

Rich: I hereby urge you to do everything in your power to have the Yankees trade Jeff Weaver back to the Tigers. I’m mystified as to why this guy’s ERA is above 5.00 right now but remain convinced that he’s one of the best young pitchers in the league. If it’s any consolation to you, Carlos Pena, the man the Tigers got in the three-way trade with the Yankee and A’s last summer, is currently hitting about .235. I’m still hopeful that he’ll improve and play a key role in the Tigers’ forthcoming World Series championship team, in the year 2010 or so. I’ll save a spot for Weaver in the starting rotation.
