Weber looks to be a steal for us. Coming off a bad year with an inflated ERA, but still has a career 3.58 ERA. Should be a cheap signing. He also brings World Series experience. He would be a great go to guy in a tough situation in a big game. You know what you are going to get from him. That's surely different from last year where we had to bring a Sanchez or Padilla or McCray in and you had no idea what you were going to get from him.
Same goes with Weathers. Florida sounds upset to lose him. He is a good bullpen arm and is durable. If we need a spot starter, he is the man.
Very good signings, Dan O'Brien! Couple that with the aquisition of Ramon Ortiz yesterday and I'd say the Reds have had a nice couple days.
