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.

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
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.
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.

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).
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.
