Brewers meet reserve price for Weaver

Jeff Weaver is back in the big leagues after signing an incentive-laced contract with the Milwaukee Brewers. He came into the season unsigned following a terrible 2008 where he posted a 6.20 ERA in Seattle. Weaver has been surpassed by his younger brother, Jered Weaver of the Angels, but he is still remembered for pitching a gem in the final game of the 2006 World Series with the Cardinals. Weaver has had a rather inconsistent career so it will be interesting to see if he can return to his 2006 postseason form, or at least better than his stint in Seattle last season. The Brewers got Weaver for a relative bargain compared to the $99,999,999 he was going for on eBay back in 2003… (throwback)

Also, Yovani Gallardo is ready to make his 2008 debut. Gallardo started the year injured with torn knee cartilage. He posted a 9-5 record with a 3.67 ERA in his rookie season. His 101 strikeouts in 110.1 innings should make him a valuable boost to the Brewers pitching staff. This is probably a more important story than Weaver being signed so just read this out of order.
