Weaver time

Jered Weaver is a pitcher, not a very good pitcher anymore, but nonetheless, he’s a pitcher. At one time Weaver was one of the best in the game, but that time has long past. He gets by on guile alone now, with a fastball velocity that is the lowest for any right-handed major league pitcher that does not throw a knuckleball.

He has had historical success against the LAD, particularly at Dodger Stadium where he has a career 1.98 in six starts.  Even last year Weaver managed to go seven innings, though he was hit hard for ten hits and four earned runs.  The fact he gets any outs is kind of magical.

Logan Forsythe,  Corey Seager, and Joc Pederson have all homered off of Weaver.

On the Dodger side Brandon McCarthy hopes to shut down the young Padre hitters and prove that he does belong in the Dodger rotation. If he can’t succeed at home against the Padres…………..

Puig has started his “I’m 26 campaign” with a bang and has the highest OPS on the team.
