When I think back on Rickie Weeks‘ 2012 fantasy season, I’m mostly overwhelmed with negative thoughts and emotions. If you look at his end-of-season stat line, though, it wasn’t really all that bad.
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 year was his atrocious start. Through May, Milwaukee’s second baseman was slashing just .158/.292/.294. I promise you there are no typos in there. Weeks was actually slugging under .300.
June was another down month as Weeks posted an OPS of just .653, but something clicked as July rolled around. That month he had an OPS of .912 while hitting five homers and driving in 15 runs. His OPS fell in August, but Weeks then decided to score 22 runs that month, and in September he decided to steal six bases! It was certainly a roller coaster ride, and if you’re like me you probably dumped Weeks after an unbearable start, bu...

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...
Larisa Fraser in a bikini is exactly what we need on a day like this. It’s freezing cold and a massive blizzard is about to ruin our weekend, but at least we can count on Larisa to keep us warm, right? Fraser, Brewers slugger Ryan Braun’s fiance, recently shot these photos for Venus Swimwear. If you are Braun would you pay her off to get her to stop modeling? The guy just signed...

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke strongly defended slugger
Ryan Braun on Saturday night, saying he's upset over the
possibility that the 2011 NL MVP was linked to baseball's latest
drug investigation for no good reason.
We’ve seen this before Ryan Braun, the most popular and by far best player on the Milwaukee Brewers is accused of using drugs. Last time he got off on a technicality. This time he got off because he was reviewing the technicality. What in the hell are we even talking about?
Hi Ryan. I don’t care if you are a juicer. Really.
Rookie of the year, 202 home runs so far, a...
