MILWAUKEE -- Rickie Weeks will never fully admit it because he's as tough as nails. Though he had every reason to use his gruesome ankle injury as an excuse for a forgettable first half of 2012 in which many called for him to be yanked from the lineup or even sent to Triple-A, he didn't say one word about it. But in reality his ankle wasn't healthy in the first half of 2012, and that played a major role in why he hit only. 199 before the All-Star break. Getting healthier as the season wore on, Weeks slowly morphed into the player he was before the July 2011 injury. Now, with another offseason of healing, expect Rickie to be Rickie again. "I'll tell you the first half was a beast," Weeks, 30, said while in Milwaukee recently. "I didn't like anything about the first half, from my standpoint and as a team."

Yes, his .230 batting average over 588 at-bats was a category killer, but his 21 homers, 16 steals, and 85 runs were actually pretty useful. What really soured me on Weeks last...

Rogers hopes injuries finally behind him

MILWAUKEE -- Mark Rogers has had plenty of seasons end or fail to begin at all because of injuries.
