Question of the Day, 8/17 …
Any news on Jered Weaver? It seemed like there were some issues between him and Chris Iannetta. — @Halofan25
Weaver admitted postgame that they just weren’t in sync, saying: “It was just one of those weird nights. Obviously me and Chris have been rolling here for a while. I just couldn’t get on the same page. It was just a bad feeling, going into it, and it was a bad feeling coming out of it. It’s going to happen.”
Iannetta shouldered the blame postgame for the first pitch to Jeff Keppinger — a curveball that resulted in a wild pitch and put runners on second and third with none out — but he said that was the only time they were crossed up. “I made a mistake,” he added. “I put down the wrong sign. It’s on me; it’s my fault on that one pitch. I thought we were using a certain sequence and we weren’t, so that one’s on me.”
Heading into this game, Weaver had been matched up with Iannetta (who missed significant time due to wrist surgery and a forearm strain) nine other times, posting a 1.50 ERA in that span. In 12 starts with Bobby Wilson, his ERA is 2.88.
