There is no doubting the pedigree and talent. It's health.
The only thing that could move him down a notch from Utley is that he hits leadoff, so will have limited RBI opportunities. Also, don't think he walks as much.
But, I think this is the year of Weeks. He will make good, being the #2 pick in the draft.
A scout once said, on record, after the draft: "Everyone is focused on BJ Upton. But it's Rickie Weeks who is the superstar of the class."
Stay healthy Rickie.
