Weaver versus Weaver

Don't know if any of you have noticed, but our own Weaver the Younger will be pitching against the Dodgers this weekend, and the Dodgers will be sending out...Weaver the Elder. Yep, that's right, as of now, Jeff and Jered Weaver are the scheduled starting pitchers for the Dodgers and Angels respectively this Saturday at Angel Stadium. This is the first time since 2002 that two brothers have started against each other in an MLB game (it was the Benes brothers last time 'round, in case you're wondering). In a battle of the Weavers, I have to like our chances, even against "the best team in baseball" (allegedly, anyway).
