Rickie "I can't Hit a Baseball" Weeks............

Postby etl1692 » Mon May 14, 2012 6:56 pm

Sooooooo Yeahhhh what the hell! Rickie Weeks! Really! Now there is talk about his injury after being pegged. Talk about beating a dead horse! Does anyone have any suggestions or actions they have taken to fill his spot at 2B? I currently moved Mike Aviles to 2B and have trout batting UTIL, but is Weeks worth a drop? You sure as hell cant trade him cause if value sucks! I feel like it would be a sin to drop him, but he has not done anything! Will he get out of this funk? I haven't watched any of his games so I have no diagnosis as what this kid is doing wrong. Currently I am not suffering from this which is good, but how long do I give this guy one of my bench spots before I decide to cut em loose?

I have a slight inkling he will bust out of it, but if he stays out of it is the question, he has had plenty of time. Have you tried shopping him around to someone who thinks he will pop out of it and be strong? I would do that before I drop him, if it has not hurt you yet try and grab an average guy with upside who is consistent and sell his name, maybe someone in your league has misplaced faith

ya i wouldnt drop him just yet, I have him too and he is driving me insane, but im gonna hang on alittle longer just incase it breaks out. If there is someone in the league that would take him and ud get something decent in return, id take it in a heart beat though
