The Jerks are the Brewers for not allowing him enough at bats to make 30-35 errors in the field...if Rickie was allowed his 650 at bats hitting lead off in Milwaukee, in an OBP League....he would be absolute money...and that's not even accounting for the possibly that he does improve at the plate..that's simple proration of what he's already done.
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?

You're right! I just remembered that he beat me up and took my lunch money when I was young.

Weeks is just the Oliver Perez of position players.

Last season I gave up on Ollie. However, when you look at his 2007, he was very helpful. The problem came when you tried to spot start him. If you did that, you'd inevitably spot start him on his bad starts and bench him on his good ones.

The only solution was to start him every time knowing that on the aggregate, you'd get a good pitcher out of it.

Weeks is the same way. You absolutely CANNOT spot start the kid. You either make a commitment to his talent and start him every day, or you stay away. If you start him every day, you'll have plenty of days where he goes 0-4 with 2 Ks, but you'll also get the 3-4 with a HR and 2 SBs days. On balance, you'll have a plus 2bman.

That's assuming that the Brewers give him ABs.

If you're willing to ride out his bad games in order to ensure you catch his good ones, Weeks is a fine player to grab, especially around 220-250.

I had Weeks last year as well....very frustrating!

Guess what...I've got him on a couple more teams this year!! Couldn't pass up where he was falling....I'll take the punishment as a late pick in hopes he starts putting it together and brings me great value. !+)
