When to stop waiting on Rickie Weeks? [Always WHIR]

Postby TruYankeeFan » Wed May 09, 2012 8:42 am

Weeks is killing me and I have Altuve starting over him at this point...and there are several options on the WW including

Kelly Johnson
Robert Andino
Mark Ellis
Chris Getz
Marco Scutaro
Allen Craig
Neil Walker
Maicer Izturis
Sean Rodriquez
Jemile Weeks
Jeff Keppinger
Eduardo Nunez
Eric Young
Jamey Carroll

I am just about ready to drop him...but you know once we do he goes on a tear....lol.

I am seriously considering dropping him for Johnson, Andino or Craig...What do you guys think?

Leave a link and I will help in return ;-D

Kelly Johnson is killing it...I hate Weeks so I would probably dump him but if you can hold onto him and he gets hot you can trade him. Maybe dump Volquez or Niese for Kelly Johnson

Yeah...I put Andino in there...but Really KJ and Allen Craig are the two guys I was really thinking of...I know KJ has been playing all season..but Craig has flexibility (1B, 2B, OF)...and should be hitting in the top of the card lineup.

My problem with dropping Niese or Volquez is that I am also considering dropping one of those two for a Westbrook.

I can understand your frustration, but I don't know if I would be giving up on him yet. .219 BABIP doesn't totally excuse his performance so far, but it certainly shows there is some bad luck involved.

If I was going to drop him though, I'd probably lean towards picking up Craig in his place.

Is there someone else on my roster you think is a no brain drop for Craig that lets me put of the decision a little longer?

Yeah I would drop Jay for Craig and wait out Weeks. It's not really a "no-brainer" move for me, but I'm pretty sure that's what I would do. Jay's .397 BABIP is pretty ridiculous, so that BA is going to drop quite a bit. His counting stats are never that great over an entire season either.

i am very close to cutting him. for now, i will bench him and pick up ANYONE ELSE. but if weeks doesn't pick it up in the next week or so he's gone. i don't carry position players on my bench so he has limited time. he's so brutal right now...
