There it goes. Fullmer hit one off Weaver.

Now, it's 9 homers Weaver have given up since joining the Yanks.

I think I got the number of HR given wrong. It should be 10, not 9.

George has to be asking why ......

Weaver, who did not give up a homer in his first 11 starts this season with Detroit, has surrendered 10 with the Yankees. Since joining New York, the right-hander is 1-2 with a 6.88 ERA.

People will say because Comerica Park is a pitchers park thats BS. The fences to RF is a reasonable distance and even if the fences are back, its only a pitchers park in the sense it doesn't give up alot of home runs. Comerica isn't a pitchers park because the gaps are wider and there is just so much more space in the OF for the outfielders to cover that its just to hard and thus it turns into a hitters park.

It's definitely not a homerun friendly ball park comparing to Yankee Stadium.

Just thought a bump would be necessary after watching Weaver give up a 2 run HR to Speizio on an 0-2 count in the top of the 11th. He then proceeded to give up 2 more runs. Angels up 5-1 going to the bottom of the 11th.

Wow, the Yanks has the best record in the AL.

Weaver have been doing quite well in relief until today's game.

You just better hope the Angels win the West - because if we're wildcard, the Yanks will be going down in the first round. You do know the Angels are the Yankee-killers - right? :)

Yup, the Angels has been playing the Yanks very well the last few years. But also, look at the Mariners of last year and the last few years, they played the Yanks well too :)

I'm a Tigers fan...
I loved Weaver as a Tiger, he always helped win the few games we won.
I'm loving him as a Yankee as he is helping to destroy the evil empire from the inside...

WAY TO GO JEFF!!!

I don't think Jeff is hurting the Yanks at all. He has been quite good as a long reliever except for today's game. With the way the starters getting injuried, I'll see Weaver will become a starter again soon.

Hahahaha. When the Yanks brought him in I told my brother "watch he's going to give up a homerun". I was wrong the first inning he pitched, but when Spiezio hit that hr "told ya so". I remembered this thread right away when the announcer said his name.

You mean to tell me that there are two Tigers fans here??? (you and I) That must be some kind of record for Tigers fans being in the same place....

Shhhh...there are 3 of us. Though I like the Tigers of my youth (65-71) a lot better than any current incarnation.

I've always liked watching the Tigers, but the Angels are my favorite team. It's pretty hard being a Tigers fan in the current climate...

Hey, it was pretty bad being a Yankee fan in the last 80's and easly 90's. Have you ever seen your team pitched a no hitter but lose 4-0? Well, that happen with Andy Hawkin pitching for the Yanks.

Weaver pitched 3 innings today for his second save. Gave up 1 run but it was NOT from a homer -eek- ;)

zuffy

See, I was right. Weaver started for the 8/30 game cuz Pettitte is hurted. Anyway, he pitched 6 inning WITHOUT giving up any homer.

zuffy

Weaver started again. Pitched 8 inning, giving up 1 ER, not a homer.

btw, the Yanks have pitched 6 consecutive games without giving up a walk. I wonder what's the record.

WOW - that really is impressive. I'd actually like to know what the record is as well. It can't be that far from it.

zuffy

I don't know what the record is but the streak for the Yanks is 58 inning. Hope I didn't jinx them tonite :p

zuffy
09-12-02, 09:12 AM
Oh well, the streak ended @ 65 innings. It wasn't a typical walk too cuz Duque licked his fingers while on the mound, an illegal move on which the umpire can call a ball.

Not like anyone care anymore but Weaver started tonite, replacing David Wells. Weaver pitched 7 2/3, giving up 1 run... a solo shot.

Looks Weaver had settle down in NY and pitching the way he's capable of pitching.

I want it to be true, but I'm not sold yet.

Why not? Forget tonite's game, he has been pitching very well in the last few starts.
