Wow.

I hope he's not their answer when Sabathia finally gets traded.
Unfortunately, it looks like they are commited to having him leave.

Nah, Jim...we REALLY can't hang CC's departure on Shapiro & Co. They made him a more than lucrative offer @ the beginning of the season and he (or his agent) turned it down.

I've had mixed emotions about CC all season. :confused:

Weaver's most likely just a body to use for the rest of the season. If Sabathia ends up getting traded, we'll need another starter considering our #2 (Carmona) and #3 (Westbrook) are on the DL. That leaves us with Lee (who's having a career year) and two rookies in Sowers and Laffey. I'm sure, especially with the forgone conclusion that this season is heading, that we won't be in any rush in Carmona back either. He will be our #1 next year if Sabathia gets traded. We will need him well rested and healthy. Weaver is just a stop gap for the rest of this season.

He could make for good trad bait.

The Indians could always sucker another team to trade a stud pitcher for Weaver.

Jeff Weaver, I guess they are waiting for next year. I feel bad for Cliff Lee. He's having a great year and it seems like the Indians are throwing in the towel.
