Cards Interested In Weaver?

According to Viva El Birdos, Walt Jocketty called Bill Bavasi yesterday, willing to take Jeff Weaver off the Ms' hands for salary relief.  Yahoo's Tim Brown believes the Cards would only have to pick up about $2MM of Weaver's $8MM salary in a deal.  However, Weaver later landed on the DL with shoulder tendinitis.  Weaver had made six starts for the Mariners, losing all of them and allowing at least seven hits in each.

Previous speculation had involved the Mariners releasing Weaver.  The Cardinals offered Weaver $6MM over two years plus incentives, and the Pirates were also interested last winter.

Speaking of Viva El Birdos, Larry has a great idea to "evoke Josh Hancock's memory and his tragic mistake," an idea far better than banning alcohol in clubhouses.  Check it out.
