How much longer for Rickie Weeks??

Postby wingman3110 » Tue May 13, 2008 7:29 pm

This guys average is absolutely killing me right now. How much longer are you guys gonna hold on to him, or have you already let him go??? Will he hit above at least the .250 mark??

I'm gonna drop that 25/25 threat! I can't take it anymore!

If there's a cheap guy available that'll get a high average to counter Weeks', problem solved.

I've got Weeks as well, but I won't drop him. He's hitting balls well. What Brewers games I've seen, people have made great plays to get him out. He's getting on base alot, stealing some, scoring a ton of runs, and has pretty good power. the only hole in his numbers right now is avg, and I gotta think that these line-outs are going to start falling for hits.

My thoughts as well...SB are there, he's scoring a ton of runs. His BABIP is incredibly low right now, a lot of bad luck. I don't think he'll be hitting .300 or anything by season's end...but .250ish with 18-20 HR, 25-30 SB, 100+ runs...sounds good to me.

If you are in roto I'd play him against weak righties and all lefties and just sit him against good righties until he starts to hit better.

I'm in for the whole season.

If he hits .200 for the whole season, I'll be slightly unimpressed but all his other stats should be sweet.
And he would be MIGHTILY unlucky to hit .200 all season. I am expecting .250 - .260.

anyone know his BAPIP? I thought I read somewhere that when his avg was around .180, his BAPIP was only like .212, which is terribly unlucky (baseball prospectus says a typical BAPIP is about .290). Once his BAPIP normalizes, his avg should be "acceptable" with the rest of his #'s from the 2B spot...well, at least that's what I keep telling myself... 8-o
