The Hangover: Jered Weaver’s Last Stand

Sometimes The Hangover hits you fast. The one great truth about baseball is that it’s extremely difficult to play competitively. Most people realize this sometime in Little League; others in high school; fewer still in college; a select handful in the minor leagues; and the rest—the very best and most determined and talented and lucky—they realize it in the major leagues. Jered Weaver had surely brushed up against this truth at various points in his career, after a bad outing at Long Beach State or a night when his stuff wasn’t working in The Show. But he was always able to forge on,...

Analysis: Doug Fister has an arm, can throw a baseball

The big news today is that the Angels signed Doug Fister, a formerly good starting pitcher. Fister has a career 3.60 ERA and 3.78 FIP, putting him as a solid starter, but he has significantly regressed since his peak. Judging by the 1,266 innings on his arm, his velocity has definitely taken a tumble for the worst. Velocity is not necessarily a death knell, but as we observed with Jered Weaver, the lack of it means less margin for error. In Fister’s case, that margin has become virtually nonexistent. Let’s put his velocity into context. Doug Fister's average fastball...

White Sox 9, Padres 3: Crazy 8th inning leads Sox to victory

In a battle of two rebuilding teams, San Diego demonstrates their tanking prowess. Despite having an awful season, San Diego Padres starting pitcher Jered Weaver was again terrific against the Chicago White Sox. After living dangerously in the first inning with the bases loaded and no outs, all the Sox could muster was one run on Avisail Garcia's double play grounder. After that, nothing from the South Siders. Jose Quintana, who is having an up-and-down season, pitched six scoreless innings and appeared to be OK with just a one-run lead heading into the seventh inning. Weaver finished...

Weaver rebounds before Padres implode in horrific inning

For his seventh pitch on Sunday, Jered Weaver threw an 0-1 fastball that hurtled toward Jose Abreu and hit the Chicago White Sox slugger in the left shoulder. Abreu grimaced but remained in the game. The errant offering had registered at 83 mph. Meanwhile, Weaver’s chances of remaining on the mound...

The Hangover: Ron Fowler Speaks (Again)

Before we get to Ron Fowler’s comments, let’s briefly discuss Jered Weaver‘s start to 2017. It’s been bad. Weaver seems like a really good guy, with a sort of self-effacing sense of humor and candor that doesn’t often show in athletes, specifically when they’re down on their luck. But he’s been really bad. I’m not sure why anyone is particularly surprised by it, though, and maybe they aren’t. Last year Weaver posted a 7.50 DRA, worst in the whole darn league, and a full run worse than James freakin’ Shields. By Baseball Prospectus’ WARP calculation, he was worth...
