This is the perfect post hype sleeper along with Howie Kendrick another 2B. I predict one of the 2 breaks out and the other is almost not drafted next year. I just don't know which is which yet~.



I just cant see Howie Kendrick close to not being drafted next season...


If he puts up another year like the last 2? Minimal power, minimal speed, erratic playtime? I mean seriously Kendrick has been worthless the last 2 years in most leagues.

His ADP continues to go up year after year despite all of this. He is an anomaly.

If Weeks steals a couple more bags and hits an inside-the-park homerun (which is doable at AT&T), there will be a Rickie Weeks is God thread. Believe it.

calling it right now, rickie weeks will no longer be a jerk after this season. i know we've all heard it too many times, but this is his make or break season. weeks is gonna be good for .275-.285, 20+ HR, 30 stls, 80+ RBI, 100+ runs. after these numbers accumulate, i will sure start the 'rickie weeks for president' forum.
