I don't see why everyone wants Weeks out of the leadoff spot. Weeks K% is down and his contact rate is up. He has just been really unlucky on BABIP. He still is taking walks at a healthy 13.8 BB%.

Let's see how many people can start their post with "I don't see why everyone wants Weeks...."


No one said he was the problem, but I do think something has to change. We'll see what Yost does, if anything.

Fielder needs to start hitting, Branyan needs to play some against righties instead of Hall.

Lineup fixed.

Power hitters tend to be slow starters is the most likely problem. In Fielders case he had the contract issues, his diet changes and he appears to have gained weight so there are plenty of reasons to be concerned. I think he'll be fine in the long run.

I'd like to see Hart in the 2 hole!! I think that makes sense. Weeks has been very unlucky thus far. As soon as he gets hot, his OBP will go through the roof!!
