Yeah if you can't afford the hit on AVG then you need to bench Weeks until he gets it together.

His career BABIP is .250 but so far around .200. Another thing he is doing is that he is hitting a lot more GB than in the past. He is cutting down on Ks which is good so I think he will snap out of it.

exactly, i can't afford his avg. cuz i have other players like hafner who are sucking it up in the AVG department pretty good too, so theriot has been filling in pretty well. if he can get his avg up then he'll def. have a spot in my lineup

as for the question, Yunel or Weeks, I'd probably rather have Weeks. if average is a big issue to your team, def yunel. Weeks is going to get more steals, and slightly more HR. If you have a few good avg guys on your team, Weeks can't really hurt you, and will provide better numbers in more cats.

I'd think Yunel will be around the 18HR 65RBI range. 15 steals, 100 runs. and he'll hit .315. 18HR is a big high, as well as the steals. Basically I can't see him hitting 20 and stealing 20 at all this year.

Weeks tho, could go 25HR, 30 steals, 100+ runs. maybe some more RBI. you'll be missing around 50pts in avg...
