He's settled in nicely in the lead off spot. Typically lead off hitters don't have a lot of RBIs.


While I will agree with you that leadoff hitters dont get a lot of RBI's, especially in the NL. Weeks has still hit .216 with runners in scoring position and .224 with runners on. ALL of his RBI's over the last month have come off of HR's he hit (3 of them were solo shots).



He is gonna score a lot of runs, but he needs to be more clutch than that.

Don't worry about the RBIs... NL Leadoff hitters don't get many...

But the runs are really nice.

On pace for:
135 runs
17 home runs
46 rbis
33 sb
.311 avg

That's pretty nice from a 2b

hmmmm, I'd picked up Kinsler but Weeks is still on the WW, I have Vidro as well. 3 2B seems a bit ridiculous but I think I'll dump Kinsler for now? :-?

Well there are like 10 guys on pace to reach 130 runs, but over the last 2 seasons, its only happened once, and that was Albert Pujols in 2004, he scored 133 runs. The runs and RBI's should even out, but he has hit horrible with runners on base.

I must have missed something red_foot, I could have SWORN that Soriano played in the outfield this year. Sorry for the oversight.

:-D

You are right though at Soriano's stats, they're ridiculous. But if somehow Vidro stays healthy and Soriano doesn't get traded, then you've lost yourself a second baseman for next year.

As Weeks defense improves (there's nowhere to go but up!), he and Utley I think will be two of the marquee guys in over the next 5-8 years. Also, Weeks is still 23, which is YOUNG and Utley is 27. Imagine where Weeks will be when he's 27.

8-o

Well, I think Weeks is definately the best out of that bunch, stick with him and Vidro. I expect Weeks to run through another rough patch this season, probably from mid-june, to early-july. However, I think Weeks will be one of the hottest hitters in the months August and September. Young hitters with potential like his tend to finish strong in the early stages of their careers (Not all, but quite a few of them I have noticed).

Soriano's last month

22 runs, 10 hr's, 21 rbi, 7 sb's, .286 ba, .958 ops

Utley's last month

23 runs, 5 hr's, 14 rbi, 4 sb's, .350 ba, 1.000 ops

Week's last month

24 runs, 4 hr's, 7 rbi, 6 sb's, .352 ba, .983 ops

So who is the best second baseman in the game (fantasywise)?

No contest


Im not sure if "No contest" was the right selection of words. More like "close, but not the best."

Picked him up last summer and kept him over the winter. Expected him to be top 5 this year and glad to see him building on last year. Very surprised at the high BA,which I expected to be his one liability this year.

My problem with Weeks is his role in the lineup.

He does it amazingly but I'd like to see him as a 3 batter to knock in some runs.

His average is great and all but 40+ k's already for a leadoff guy is tuff especially in my league that deducts points for k's.

He's gonna be a great player but right now Jose Lopez is outproducing him in my points league.

I might pick weeks up and try to dish Chone or Peralta
