Who says Scott Boras has lost it? Sure, he bombed out the Alex Rodriguez negotiations, and he ended up putting Kyle Lohse, the supposed top free agent pitching name, in St. Louis at an extreme discount. But look at what he's done with Jeff Weaver!
Weaver, who signed a one-year contract after one of the most dominant postseason performances in recent memory and ended up practically destroying the Mariners' pennant chances (and any hope at a contract this year), has finally landed with a team: The Nashville Sounds.
Yes, Weaver signed a minor league contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, and if everything goes perfect, he could be with the team in a month. We do hope he pitches for the Brewers at Busch at some point this year. Busch Stadium is the only place on earth that would welcome Weaver with a standing ovation ... and that includes the Weaver household.
