He means he could hit 30 HR's in the future and be in the 3rd spot in the line up, but for now he thinks he is more suited for a lead off job.
Weeks is a guy that is going to have an OBP that will be above .100 over his avg, so the top of the order seems like an obvious place to me for him especially with his speed. If he just gets his avg. up to 260-.270 this year, that's a OPB of around .370 ... which is right there w/ Clark's from last year.
