    He also tied for the team lead with one complete game.
    This struck me as funny. I don't know why, but it did. In a sad, hurtful funny kind of way.

    The Recent run of lack of CG is a baseball wide problem.

    But the Reds haven't topped 5 since 2000

    Code:

    Sheehan thinks the same.

    He’s not in any danger of ending up in Cooperstown, but the best remaining free agent by far is right-hander Jeff Weaver. Unable to reach an agreement with the Dodgers last month, Weaver hit the market at a time when league-average starters are getting three-year deals, or better, simply on the hope that they’ll be healthy and effective. Consider the five starting pitchers who have signed the biggest contracts this offseason, listed here with their 2003-05 records:
    Code:
                      Age   W-L     ERA    IP    BB   SO   HR  SNLVAR  WARP
    A.J. Burnett       28  12-12   3.61  352.0  135  332   23     8.2   9.1
    Kevin Millwood     32  32-29   3.83  555.0  171  440   53    12.8  13.1
    Jarrod Washburn    31  29-31   4.08  534.0  145  298   73    13.0  14.5
    Matt Morris        31  40-28   4.22  567.0  132  368   77    10.5   9.9
    Esteban Loaiza     34  43-26   4.02  626.1  182  497   67    14.9  18.9
    Jeff Weaver        29  34-33   4.61  603.1  157  403   70    10.4  12.1
    Weaver has the worst single-season performance in this crowd, his awful ’03 for the Yankees, and that drives up his overall ERA. Looking at everything else, though, you can see he stands firmly in the middle of the crowd in Support-Neutral and WARP terms, in peripherals, and he’s been second only to Loaiza in durability. (This chart, by the way, reinforces the notion that Loaiza’s contract is a bargain.) If you’d looked at these six pitchers just one year ago, you might well have concluded that Weaver was the best of the bunch, as he led the six in SNLVAR in 2004.

    Weaver should get the kind of money that’s been doled out to Jarrod Washburn and Matt Morris, because he’s been just as good a pitcher. If a team can bring him into the fold for less, and especially if they can limit their commitment to two years, they will have picked up a significant edge on the teams that have paid mid-rotation starters like aces all winter long. Look for Weaver to be the 2006 version of Millwood or Loaiza, the late signing, the forgotten one, who has a significant impact on the season and makes big money next winter.

    I should note that even though I'd try to snag Weaver for a season, he scares the hell out of me - .867 OPS against LHBs last year and moving from Dodger Stadium to the GAB likely wouldn't help that.
