RICKIE WEEKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

3 MLB Teams that must make a Trade

Like I’ve been saying for weeks now, the MLB trade deadline is fast approaching. So far, we’ve seen some blockbuster trades, like the one that the A’s pulled off just a few weeks ago. But, I anticipate that there will be more blockbuster trades to come in the next 8 days. In this article, I’ll be focusing on the teams that must make a trade before the trade deadline. These...

Assessing Milwaukee Brewers Veteran Rickie Weeks

Rickie Weeks has dropped off a ton since 2011, and shows little to no signs of being able to get back to 2011 form The Milwaukee Brewers are one of the bigger surprises in the MLB this season and they’re getting it from all facets of their game. They can hit, pitch, and play some solid defense. Sitting on their bench currently is former all-star and a big contract in Rickie...

Weeks shows he is still capable of helping carry an offense

MILWAUKEE -- One of the tougher things to do in baseball is come off the bench and play every once in a while, especially when a player is used to seeing his name in the lineup every day. It's a tough adjustment to make and one Rickie Weeks has had to figure out for the first time in is 11-year career with the Milwaukee Brewers. Milwaukee's Opening Day starter at second base...

What is Rickie Weeks Worth?

Back in March, the only sports story Wisconsinites were talking about more than the Badgers’ Final Four run was the Brewers’ second-base battle. Young Scooter Gennett, coming off a fantastic rookie cup of coffee, challenged incumbent Rickie Weeks for the starting job. After a full slate of games down in Maryvale, manager Ron Roenicke essentially decided not to decide and chose...

Weeks provides spark to help Brewers bust slump

MILWAUKEE -- It has certainly been a strange season for Rickie Weeks, to say the least. No longer the starting second baseman for the Milwaukee Brewers, a title he's held for most of the past nine seasons, Weeks has been regulated to starting only when the opponent is starting a left-handed pitcher. Having never been a bench player before, Weeks struggled to adapt to irregular...

Brewers Saturday: Weeks declines possibility of trying LF

MILWAUKEE -- With the Milwaukee Brewers struggling to get much production out of left field, manager Ron Roenicke said the team recently approached second baseman Rickie Weeks about the possibility of giving the outfield a try. Weeks, who has strictly been starting against left-handed pitchers, declined and isn't open to a change in position. "I'm a second baseman,"...

Do we know which MLB teams will be sellers yet?

We're a little over seven weeks away from the trade deadline, and something alarming is becoming apparent: we really don't know which teams are going to be sellers next month. Last year, the A's made the playoffs after being 6.5 games out of the wild card race on June 15th and five games under .500. If you use that as the barometer, two-thirds of the teams in the league...

Rickie Weeks still Rickie Weeks

Last night Rickie Weeks went 1-for-4 with a walk and a strikeout. If that hit had been an extra base hit, it would have been the most Rickie Weeks line ever. 1-for-4 with a walk isn't a sexy line and it's not very fun to watch, but it's good and it's valuable. It's a .400 On Base Percentage and it's what Rickie Weeks does. If you understand that and why it...

Weeks doesn't anticipate dropoff in 2012

After winning a franchise-record 96 games a year ago, all eyes are watching to see if Milwaukee Brewers can repeat as National League Central champions. But after losing Prince Fielder, who anchored the lineup for the last six-plus seasons, is that a realistic goal? Second baseman Rickie Weeks sure thinks so. "You know, a lot of times people look at Prince not being here...
