How to Weave a Tank

If Jered Weaver is in the Padres rotation, the tanking strategy isn’t a secret to anyone. As you may have read, the Padres are rumored to have considered signing free agent Jered Weaver to compliment the titillating twosome of Clayton Richard and Jhoulys Chacin somewhere in the Padres rotation. Before you get all twitterpated, stop and take a breath. We should all know by now that AJ Preller will kick every tire in the lot and bark up every tree before making an offer. Naturally he’ll check in with a former quasi-ace looking for a rebound hook-up on the odd chance that something...

The Padres, according to Heyman, are interested in picking up some cheap starting arms (as evidenced by their acquisition of Jhoulys Chacin), and one of those arms they have their eyes on is our very own Jered...

Jered Weaver is another piece the Padres could throw at the wall

This rumor came out yesterday but since Jered Weaver threw it, it's just getting here today. It seems the Padres have been eyeballing Weaver for a spot in their Statue of Liberty rotation - you know, "Give me your tired, your poor... the wretched refuse of your teeming shore" and so on - and my thoughts on the matter are approximately the same as my thoughts on them signing Jhoulys Chacin: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. So instead of talking about or even looking at Jered Weaver's statistics, I'm just going to tell you a story. Two guys walk into a bar and grill. After promptly bringing the drinks they...
