    Kent Mercker has an ERA thus far of 3.00 with a 1.36 WHIP
    Weather is at 3.96 and 1.30 WHIP

    Would it be completely terrible if we kept these guys around if they are under contract for next year?

    Weathers has been pretty solid on the road posting a 2.19 ERA and .85 WHIP.
    Mercker suprisingly has been better in Cincinnati than on the road.

    No, it wouldn’t be terrible. They’ve both been pretty good.

    I’m not surprised about Mercker; I thought he’d be good this year. Weathers has been quite a surprise, indeed.

    I hope he keeps it up. I’d like nothing more than to eat some crow in the off-season, after hammering Weathers earlier this year.
