Thankfully both men have some redeeming qualities, which is why the Brewers really emphasized depth this offseason. Counsell has a solid .352 OBP and plays very good defense, and Graffanino has hit .283/.364/.566 (.930) since June 1st while playing above average defense. Really, they've both been better than Weeks, although neither can replace his speed. But when is Weeks is playing well, he's light years beyond those two, so he needs to find himself, and quickly.
