I mentioned in the game thread yesterday that Weaver handling the Reds twice in a week may be the proverbial silver lining in the dark cloud. LaRussa saw how he pitched against the Reds so he gives him more starts. Everyone else pounds him which is a good thing for the Reds if they can win. LaRussa will keep starting him because he remembers how well he did against the Reds.
