Saturday is Weaver Time

The matchup Jeff Weaver has been waiting for could be on for Saturday.

According to Doug Padilla 's report in the Los Angeles Daily News, the Dodgers have told Weaver that he'll be starting this Saturday against the Angels. The Angels starter that night is Jered Weaver, which means the Weavers would finally get the family bragging rights game they've wanted.

"That's the one thing that hasn't happened," Jeff Weaver said when I saw him a couple weeks back in Chicago. "When I was with Seattle, we were set up for it, but then [the Angels] put [Ervin] Santana back in the rotation, so it didn't happen."

Jered Weaver faced Jeff's Dodgers on May 22 at Dodger Stadium, getting no decision in a 3-1 Angel win. Jeff admits that as he watched that night, he wanted his brother to pitch well while the Dodgers won. Jeff Weaver had started for the Dodgers two nights earlier against the Mets, so he missed the Angels series.

So how will the Weaver family react?

"I don't think my dad would like it," Jeff Weaver said. "I don't think he'd even go to the game. It'd be cool, but it'd be tough for the family."
According to Padilla, brothers have faced each other as starting pitchers 20 times in baseball history, most recently in 2002 when Alan Benes of the Cubs faced Andy Benes of the Padres. Nine of the 20 matchups featured Phil and Joe Niekro.

Remember the days of yore when Jeff was a Yankees flamethrower with a hemp necklace and a serious attitude. Than came the westcoast move, manifest destiny. He picked up an OXY Contin Addiction which I believe he passed on to JERED, and His velocity was still amazing because as we all know you work like a madman on opiates and remain Highly productive while looking like a complete dirtbag junkie, remember his eyes when he was at his worst, all sunk back with red rings. by the way the necklace changed from the friendly hemp to a platinum or gold figerou link. As he cleaned himself up and left the OXY's alone his work ethic and fastball took huge hits. I love this guy and his brother, I watch every single Jered Start and I too am very excited to see the dueling Weaver Flamethrowers. I seriously hope its a CGSOQSW and a CGSOQSL, I want zero zero in the 9th both guys on th mound. Dirtbags for life, Thanks for the Blog bro. awesome topic. Check me out add a comment and add me as a favorite.
