2007- injured (431 ABs)

Tell me how he is only going to have 350-400 ABs? He has had over 400 in three out of his four seasons. Don't get angry about Weeks just because you play in some weak 10 team league with only one middle infield spot. The guy is going to have over 500 ABs and hit 20 HRs with 30 SBs. Pretty darn good production.


I didn't know you were in my league :-B

He has injury problems in the past....you have listed his last 4 years. When was the last time he played a full major league season? Never. That is a concern and if you are not concerned you are in denial. I also worry about his strikeouts and his low avg. Through 1140 MLB at bats Weeks is a .249 hitter :(

Since you ask, in my league Weeks went in Round 7 @ pick #77 (12 team league). I went with Howie Kendrick round 8 pick #94. Kendrick also has had injury concerns (but at least he hits) so I backed him up with Aaron Hill at pick #262 in the 22nd round.


I listed his ONLY four years. In 2005, he played a full season. Listen, man, we obviously disagree on this one. I think Weeks will be healthy and produce. You don't. Such his fantasy baseball. Get over yourself.

I took J. Fields way too early in a draft. There were so many better players available, as soon as i submitted the pick i wanted to take it back.

There are two players every year that I feel are undervalued in every draft.

#1 Godzilla aka Hideki Matsui

#2 Abreu (yes He was even on my list as a Philly)

Pence is unproven. I would applaud this move.

Eric Gagne. I've drafted him in a few leagues knowing that he hasn't pitched all that great so far, but I couldn't help myself.

Yeah. If he somehow starts this season you'll feel better though. :-o

I gotta back him up here. Weeks has had one major injury and it was one where they said it would last a full season and it did. Drafting him in 2007 was a mistake because they specifically said the wrist would bother him for over half of 2007.

Did I hear correctly yesterday that Crede is going to be the starting 3B out of camp?
