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.
