Wow say hello to your future Brewer fans. Is this the next Derek Jeter?

For all of us that picked him up quickly, let's hope so ;-D

Weeks has one of the nicest swings I've ever seen in my lifetime. There are no sure things but my guess would be he'll be better than Jeter.

I keep hearing how they're trying to get him to level out his bat a bit, a la Sheffield, because they say he's got the fastest hands they've seen since, yes, Sheffield. Dude seems to have some pretty sick power for a relatively small (height-wise) 2B. Looks pretty thick, though.

Rickie Weeks is disgusting and will be better than Jeter as far as the numbers go. But he will never match Jeter finger for finger.

Fingers? Is that code for rings?

Weeks has way more pop than Jeter.

I see him as a Miguel Cabrera with speed. I have him on several keepers and am darn excited.

;-D

Hate to keep beating this home, but when I saw the HR yesterday, I thought, "Man, this kid swings like Sheffield!" Hands whipped through the zone and the ball just jumped off his bat. Combine that with how Miller Park plays in the summer and we could be looking at a verrrry nice 2nd half for Mr. Weeks (knock on wood).
