i wonder if this will catch on with steinbrenner?
Here's one way to get rid of a player on your favorite team who is just weighing the team down:
A frustrated New York Yankees fan has taken his displeasure of pitcher Jeff Weaver to the Internet. The fan is trying to use eBay to auction off the struggling right-hander, who's 6-and-9 with a hefty 5.78 ERA this year.
I guess I wasn't the only one disgusted and frustrated after Weaver's latest outing - an 11-0 loss to the Royals. My mother and I argued over this - she says Weaver never gets support and she feels sorry for him. My argument is simple: he sucks.
The fan -- known as "free range veal" on eBay, describes Weaver as a pitcher "in fair-to-good condition, hardly used and showing minor wear." He notes that he'll only sell Weaver to Boston, the Yankees' chief rival in the American League East.
Although, he'll also accept a white turtle neck and a bag of batting practice balls in lieu of payment for Weaver.
Hell, I would take a firm handshake and a promise that they wouldn't try to return him. Keep the shirt and balls.
