Weaver Traded to Yanks!!!!I became sick to my stomach when I heard of went down Friday. Not only did the Tigers trade Weaver, but they traded him to the freaking Yankees! I'm happy for him because he'll finally get some run support.....but the Yankees?!?! I really think that the Tigers got the shaft with this deal. All they could get was a future closer and a 1B prospect? Don't we already have enough first basemen at the Copa? And a closer? Who cares about closers. I got news for you people. Anybody can be a closer. I repeat....anybody!! I was under the impression that the Tigers were looking for three can't miss players or prospects for Weaver. I think DD has a lot of exlaining to do here. Something tells me there will be more moves in the very near future. I'd love to hear from you about this trade. Was it fair? Did we give up too much? E-mail. I'll post the best comments...
I appreciate everybody's patience with me the last two months. To all the Weaver Fan Central fans that have E-mailed me asking for an update, don't worry...it's coming. I've been extremely busy. You should see some very cool changes to this site by the All-Star break. I'm working on a brand new design which I think is just kickass. I'm also going to splurge and go for premium hosting. I'm getting sick of Tripod and their pop-ups and banner ads. I guess that's the price you pay for free hosting.
Anyways, stop back and check out the new Jeff Weaver Fan Central soon. If you have anything you would like to see on the new site or if you have any general suggestions, don't hesitate to drop me an E-mail.
The reason why I started this site was because I wanted to showcase the future ace of the Detroit Tigers, Jeff Weaver. Jeff came into the league in 1999 at a time when his club was in desperate need of a quality starting pitcher. He took the League by storm, going 6-3, 2.89 in his first nine outings. Ever since then, he's never looked back. Weaver's control is outstanding, which along with his many throwing angles, keeps batters guessing. He has all the tools of a superstar and will be the Tigers ace for the 2002 season, and its first since Jack Morris in the early to mid-1980s. Weaver has committed himself over the last two years to increasing his strength and conditioning, and should challenge for a Cy Young Award over the next several years. He still has some room for improvement. Although Weaver has the potential to become one of the top starting pitchers in baseball, he must learn to stay on top of his breaking ball and locate his fastball more consistently. He also has to keep his emotions in check, as his outbursts on the mound have made him unpopular with umpires. The Tigers see Weaver as their ace of the future, but he's got some rungs to climb before he can be one of the best in the league.
I hope that you enjoy this site as much I have enjoyed putting it together. I will updating it very regularly, so stop back and check it out! If you have any questions or comments, I'd love to hear from you.
