And So, Goodbye, Jered: Cardinals 6, Angels 5 (10 Innings)Three runs, two earned (the unearned run coming due to Erick Aybar's throwing error in the fourth that allowed Brendan Ryan to take second) against an admittedly slightly-below-average offense (11th in the league with 196) — the league's worst bullpen (5.33 ERA!) guaranteed he would finish the day without a win. If anybody wonders why Jered Weaver will join John Lackey on the east coast when his current contract is up — either with the Yankees or Red Sox — you don't have to wonder anymore.
Dodgers Can't Finish The Sweep: Tigers 6, Dodgers 2The MLB.com game recap blames Kuroda's three-run first, but really he did his job; why the bullpen imploded is another story, as is why the offense wasn't able to do much past the pair of runs they scratched out in the fifth.
The reason WTY will move elsewhere is not because of the bullpen or offense (which, you must admit, should look quite a bit different in two or three years - there may be a completely new OF, and here's guessing a different catcher, 3B and maybe even 2B; the 'pen will no longer have Fuentes, Rodney or Shields, and I suspect will also be without Cassevah) but because his agent is Scott Boras, and he'll find more money for Jered from an East Coast team.
