Weeks is obviously why you should do the deal though, he has a chance to be the top 2B on fantasy baseball. Also don't worry about Weeks K's, they will go down with more experience, after all he is just 22 and wasn't even in the minors for more then a 1 1/2 years. It's not like he has a bad eye or holes in his swing, the K's just come from trying to adjust to better pitching and not enough experience.
Also unless the Astros bring in some people, I don't like their offense for the future. Everyone they have seems to be average or on the down swing in the coming years, besides Berkman and Ensberg.
Completely agree on this one.
Berkman is solid, but nothing spectacular, but IMO Weeks is, and will continue to be for quite a long time. Swisher won't set the world on fire he's more than servicable in the OF.
