New look for Mariners' Rickie Weeks, hopes for fresh start

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) The most noticeable thing is the hair. Gone are the long dreadlocks that were once a Rickie Weeks staple. He'd worn them since 2008, but said he grew tired of the hair style.

Mariners finalize 1-year contract with free agent Rickie Weeks

  Rickie Weeks understands his career as only a second baseman is likely over. He's ready to embrace the idea of being a utility player, even if that means learning positions he hasn't played since becoming a professional. ''I'm not going to say it's easy.

Rickie Weeks, Mariners?

Rickie Weeks just signed a $2 million deal with the Seattle Mariners who happen to already have a second baseman named Robinson Cano. The deal is a pay cut for Weeks to the tune of 82%. Ouch. It doesn't seem that long ago that Rickie Weeks was an All Star and seemed to be one of the most dynamic players in the game. What the heck happened? The timing of Week's descent from All...

Brewers may be one of MLB’s Most Active Teams in Offseason’s Final Weeks

This is an issue I think many observers and writers have conceptualized but not put into words. Of course, as Todd mentions, players like James Shields, Frankie Rodriguez, Rafael Soriano and...

Farewell My Love. Farewell Rickie Weeks.

To me? It's the end of an era. Rickie Weeks has been my favorite Brewers since before he was a Brewer. It was Rickie Weeks being drafted number two overall that brought the Brewers back in...
