Jeff Weaver was designated for assignment by the Angels today, another in a recent string of high-profile, high-salary, underperforming pitchers who have been unceremoniously dumped in the last couple of weeks despite still being owed millions (see also Russ Ortiz and Jason Johnson). What makes Weaver dumping especially ironic is that his replacement in the Angel rotation will be his little brother, Jered. Ouch. That's gotta sting.
If the price is right (i.e., dirt cheap), I wouldn't mind seeing the Dodgers try to get Jeff. He's not great, but he was adequate for us the last couple of years. It will also be interesting to see if the Dodgers decide to add to the string of DFAs by dumping Odalis Perez.
