Send Weathers to a winning team and get a warm body that might help 2-3 years down the road.
Not to get off track but if Milton was just interested in cashing a paycheck he could have ridden the DL as much as he wanted to from the day he signed that deal.
The guy went through a lot of physical pain to keep trying and obviously a lot of embarrassment when he was consistently reminded that he was no longer a good player in front of 20-30 K every night. That's a tough thing for a pro athlete to face.
I don't want to ever see him pitch for us again but I don't have any issue with Miltons effort. Just wanted to make a distinction between ripping him for his lack of performance(I'm all for it and do it often) and questioning his charachter.
