Prosecutor wrote:I hear ya Pods but I still believe that there's no way the Tribe wins that 14-inning game if either Albert or Trout or both were in the lineup. Either of those guys would have gotten another run home given 13 innings to work with. How many runners did they strand - 17?

Less separation between his pitches, sure. But 2011 and 2012, he went 38-13 with a 2.59 ERA. 2.5 mph makes a difference, but he's always been a guy that mixes his pitches and isn't fastball-reliant.Has a 3.49 ERA since coming the DL on MAY 29, so it's not like he was just coming back from the DL and trying to find his mechanics. 85/23 K/BB ratio.Has he lost some of what he used to be? Probably, yes. Is he still a quality pitcher? Yes.
"I know Weaver's velocity is down after that injury, but that doesn't mean he has forgotten how to pitch," said Francona. "We had one really good inning, but we kept after him. We made him work really hard."
