Urgent memo to McCourt,Colletti and Lasorda!Sorry Ned I have to call a spade and take back my comment that you are a great General Manager!YOU COULD HAVE BEEN THE GREATEST GENERAL MANAGER OF ALL TIME WITH ALL THE GREAT MOVES YOU DID!BUT AGAIN, HOW IN THE WORLD DID WE NOT SIGN THE ACE OF THE PITCHING STAFF, NAMELY,MR.JEFF WEAVER WHO THE LAST TWO YEARS GAVE HIS EVERYTHING TO THIS ORGANIZATION WITH 444 INNINGS PITCHED AND RATED NINTH IN THE LEAGUE IN WHIP!LOOK AT WHAT HE DID TODAY,FIVE SCORELESS INNINGS,ONLY 3 HITS AND 5 STRIKEOUTS!McCourt,Colletti,Lasorda,read again, he was the “ACE”,read again,the “ACE” of the staff!How can you build a championship team when you let the “ACE” of the staff go!You have cheated yourselves and all the Los Angeles Dodger fans!And!And!And!He is in his prime!YOU HAVE ALSO CHEATED THE PLAYERS,
LIKE JEFF KENT!WITH JEFF WEAVER WE WOULD HAVE BEEN CONTENDERS FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND ALL OF DODGERVILLE WOULD HAVE BEEN HAPPY!I WILL BE SICK FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE BECAUSE I LOVE THE LOS ANGELES DODGERS SO MUCH AND WE COULD HAVE HAD IT ALL FOR A LONG TIME AND NOW WE HAVE TO SETTLE FOR WAY LESS!WITH JEFF WEAVER WE WOULD HAVE BEEN CONTENDERS FOR THE WORLD SERIES FOR A LONG TIME, NOW WE HAVE TO LIVE WITH BEING SECOND BEST,MAYBE THIRD BEST AND MAYBE FOURTH WITH NO WORLD SERIES!WHAT A KILLER TO LIVE WITH!

Jeff Weaver might have given the Dodgers lots of innings but he is not a great pitcher. Certainly not deserving of an extended big money contract. Maybe if he had a regular agent and not Boros he would still be a Dodger. But he still strikes me as a journeyman, not an ace.

This is to the last post to lukemccain.444 Innings is a lot of innings and don’t forget we had a losing record of 71 and 91 and Brad Penny and Odalis Perez were injured.HE HAD THE MOST WINS OF 14 UNDER TRYING CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH EVEN IS A MORE OF A TESTAMENT OF HIM BEING THE ACE! THE DODGERS HAVE MADE HIM A JOUNEYMAN!My vision is to win the World Series not only this year but also the future as well!WHAT HAPPENS IF BRAD PENNY AND ODALIS PEREZ GET HURT!We will
not be as strong because we didn’t sign Jeff Weaver!THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT WE WOULD BE A LOT STRONGER WITH JEFF WEAVER AND WORLD SERIES CONTENDER NOT ONLY FOR THIS YEAR BUT FOR MANY FUTURE YEARS!You can’t argue with that because it is the truth! NED COLLETTI’S JOB IS TO HAVE THE BEST TEAM POSSIBLE!We are

a far lesser team because he did’t do that and money is no issue HERE!WE WON’T WIN THE WORLD SERIES NOW,BUT WITH JEFF WEAVER AND ALL THE REST OF THE GOOD MOVES WE WOULD HAVE BEEN TOUGH TO KNOCK OUT OF A WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP NOW AND IN THE FUTURE!I KNOW THE DODGERS HAVE DONE VERY,VERY WRONG HERE BECAUSE WHEN SOMETHING HURTS THE TEAM VERY BAD,IT IS VERY,VERY WRONG!I TOLD THE DODGERS TO HIRE ME AS A SPECIAL ADVISOR!WE HAD A GREAT SHOT AT THE WORLD SERIES

IN OUR HANDS AND WE LET IT SLIP AWAY!HOW SAD!I AM VERY SICK OVER THIS FOR THIS YEAR AND FOR THE YEARS TO COME!

I would have liked to keep Jeff Weaver too. He did have the best record on the Dodgers. But Scott Boras makes ridiculous demands for most of his clients. I’m just saying he was not worth the contract that his agent wanted. Money is a big factor in the decision.
I am hoping that Jae Seo will continue the good last part of his 2005 season and that Tomko will be able to put in a solid year. The Dodgers also have some good young pitchers they can bring up from the minors. I wish Weaver were here too but not for a five year 50 million contract.

To lukemccain.Jeff Weaver signed a 1 year deal with the Angels being over $8 million per year!Derek Lowe makes 7 million a year,not much difference!Obviously,the money could have been negotiated!But the Bottom line is get to the World
Series,we had to sign Jeff Weaver!Since the Angels signed him for a one year contract,we don’t look good at all!It is all about getting to the World Series and that’s what the Dodgers should have been thinking about when it came to signing Jeff Weaver.Obviously they didn’t,therefore we will suffer greatly!
