M's cut bait, kinda

So the Mariners put Jeff Weaver on the DL instead of just cutting him. Generally the Bavasi regime has been pretty quick to dump a guy once its clear he's done. Boone, Olerud, Everett and others have all gotten their walking papers, maybe not as quickly as we would have liked, but pretty quickly.

That makes this move a little strange, because I don't think anyone thinks there is anything wrong with Weaver. Here's the word from Billy Bavs:

Jeff is a guy that won't complain about anything and just takes the baseball. It become obvious to us when he needed to reach back for that little something extra, his arm strength just wasn't there.

Hmmm. I don't think there has been anything to reach back for in quite a while.
