Jeff Weaver has always had his issues and I have no reason to like the guy. Don't dislike him, but................

But the Jeff Weaver 2006 saga, could be turned into an inspirational big screen flick. There are lessons to be learned from his 2006 journey, and while I wouldn't waste time trying to tell my 9 year old about it, if I had a 15 year old Babe Ruth league son, I'd be telling him all about it at the breakfast table tomorrow morning.

Imagine getting cut loose from a team, while your younger brother essentially takes your roster spot. Then you watch as your brother tears the league apart, while you continue to struggle for your new team.

Then a Manager shows great patience, and you turn it all around.

And then you dominate in the World Series closing game.

Great stuff.
