Glad to see he, Weeks, in the the bigs now. I dropped Mota for him, since I allready had a couple of closers in Turnbrow and Streets. At least both of them are closing!!

The team I got him in is a 12 team keeper league, and we keep 12 for the next season. Really looking forward in seeing Weeks play. Now just debating if I start him today or not. Iguchi is my second baseman right now. :-?

Hope this all works out great and now I have my second baseman for a long time in many season to follow!!

I'm starting him today, just in case he has one of those memorable first days in the bigs...

I had an empty spot on my roster after making a 2 for 1 trade and I picked up Weeks. I hope the kid puts up some nice numbers. ;-D

Isn't it usually just the day games that get blacked out?

Yeah as long as you aren't in the normal blackout zone (me) you should be able to watch him ;-D

Not to steal the thread... but I'm blacked out to 6 teams on MLB.tv... and it just pisses me off.

I have nothing to add about Weeks... but I hope they hit him second. I hate watching good rookies hit low in the order with no protection. Confidence can be a big issue with young prospects. If they want him to produce, then they should put him in a spot where he'll see good pitches. Hitting between Clark and either Lee or Overbay he should get plenty of heaters to look at.

Wow, where do you live? I live in a suburb of Pittsburgh and oddly enough I'm blacked out from watching phillies games while there hasn't been a pirates game I havent been able to watch.

I also hope they bat weeks 2nd. His power speed combination would be ideal for the 2 spot and like you said having some protection should definetely help him develop.

I'm blacked out to 6 teams also. Living in Iowa you don't get the Cubs, White Sox, Twins, Royals, Cardinals or Brewers. I've sent complaints to MLB.com saying there is no way that I am in the local market of 6 teams but no success.

Also I have Weeks in a keeper and I'm loving it, picked him up a few weeks ago when the rumors of him coming up really heated up. Hopefully he can show us his potential this year :-)

Cedar Falls, Iowa... blacked out to:

Chicago Cubs
Chicago White Sox
Kansas City Royals
Minnesota Twins
St. Louis Cardinals
Milwaukee Brewers

It's ridiculous... we're well over 300 miles from St. Louis. Yet I still buy this freaking service every year.
