Weaver (0-2, 15.75)         Santana (1-2, 7.63)

Don't worry guys, Jeff Weaver won't be deterred by his awful start. If you thought he was so weak-willed that he'd try to fix the problems that came up over his first two starts, well, you've got another thing coming.

"You may be tempted to add something or do something different," he said, "but staying in the same routine and working on the things that got you here is the best approach to take."

Of course, that dumbshit 86mph two-seamer isn't what got Weaver here. What got Weaver here was the success he had throwing 92mph heaters in the World Series. But what do I know? I'm just some guy. Weaver's a professional pitcher with a four-digit ERA.

Go Mariners.
