I really wanted to avoid writing this post. I figured calling Rickie Weeks overrated was too easy. Like your Moms. Snap! Oh, no Grey didn’t! I did. But then I started thinking about my 25-for-26 record being right calling guys overrated. Then I started to think if I don’t do some of these broadside of the barn ones, my record might look worse than it is at the end of the year. Yes, I’m basically saying that if it’s the last day of the season and I’m batting .3995, I’m sitting out the game. Hey, Ty Cobb did it! (Or at least he did it as portrayed by Tommy Lee Jones.) So why is Rickie Weeks overrated for 2011 fantasy baseball?
Health risk. End of post. See if I can break this down to you a’la the SATs. Which number doesn’t fit? 96, 95, 118, 129, 37 or 160. I’ll wait for you to answer. *taps finger, scratches head, yawns* C’mon, it’s 160! (If you answered C, you answer C for everything even if there are no corresponding letters.) 160 games is the number he had last year. So he went from unable to get insurance from Geico to being Cal Ripken? Um, okay. If he clears 110 games again, I’d be impressed. That would reduce his stats to that of, say, Gordon Beckham, who’s being drafted about 150 picks later. Right now, Weeks is being drafted on average at pick number forty. Forty, indeed. As in these people are drinking one. Seriously, that’s Milton Bradley crazy. Speaking of which, I’m dating this one girl that is Milton Bradley crazy. She has cat eyes and whiskers tattooed just above her nether regions. Yes, I’m dating The Girl with the Catgina Tattoo. Any the hoo! Don’t draft Weeks. He’s far too risky for where he’s being drafted.
