    Reds Targeting Jeff Weaver?

    Multiple teams interested in Weaver

    Times staffer Bill Shaikin says the Dodgers, Cardinals, Padres, Mets, Brewers, Red Sox, Rangers and perhaps even the Reds and D-Backs all have varying degrees of interest in Angels pitcher Jeff Weaver.

    Put him in the bullpen...it absolutely cannot get worse than the highest bullpen ERA in baseball.

    That's an interesting and tempting thought.

    Would a Larue for Weaver straight up deal be enough to get it done?
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I would have to believe that the Angels would be very glad to swap players. They have been wanting a veteran catcher all season since Mathis didn't work out. Napoli has been outstanding though. LaRue would probably have to be a backup. It would be very costly for them to eat both salaries, I imagine the Reds would have to, at least, pick up the difference.

    How about Weaver revitalizes his career as the Cincinnati Reds closer??

    Id do that deal...change of scenery for both....Weaver would probably get shelled here though.
    Hoping for another Reds October

    Imagine if he get back to his Dream Weaver days of Detroit here in Cincy...that would be great. He lost his luster when he moved to the big market teams.....small market is where Weaver works the best in my opinion.

    Larue for Weaver works for me and if we need to throw in Hammond.

    Angels have zero need for Larue, especially with youngsters like Napoli and Mathis.
