It's not worth it

John Delcos at Lo Hud, writes about Jeff Weaver and why he isn't worth the trouble:

Jeff Weaver's name has been thrown out as a possibility to fill the rotation, but don't look for it to happen.

He wants too much money. Four years at $40 million is too much for somebody who pitched well in a few playoff games. GM Omar Minaya remembers that he was 3-10 with a 6.29 ERA in 16 starts with the Angels before he was designated for assignment.

And, while the Mets and Yankees are different animals, Minaya is wary of him pitching in New York, and is considering free agents Tomo Ohka and Tony Armas. Neither is clear cut better than the Mets' current options.
