I’ve been very, very hard on David Weathers, but it’s time to be contrite. He’s pitched very, very well lately, and he had a big part in tonight’s victory, stopping the bleeding at a time when the Reds very well could have lost the game.
His ERA is now 3.74. Not too bad, considering his start. I’m going to lay off him for a while.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
