  1. I saw Weeks plenty and your assumption about contact is correct. Although Weeks may have improved in making contact in 2012, much of the time, that contact was, shall we say…weak.

    Also, I’m not certain that Weeks is automatically the No. 1 option at 2B in Oakland in 2013, even with the departure of Pennington. Beane has suggested Scott Sizemore will compete for the 2B job with Donaldson entrenched at 3B.

  2. True, and I like Sizemore a lot. Should be a good competition for the starting job, and I think Sizemore has the edge. My guess is he wins it and Weeks starts in AAA again.

  3. Your second-to-last paragraph nailed it. Watching him all year (and since college) the most telling stat to look at from this season was his LD% – down 4.5%. He’s always been a slashy-type hitter who’d spray line drives and even had good power for a 5’8″ second baseman. This year he chased a lot of junk and pitchers realized he couldn’t handle the fastball especially up in the zone and would get him to either ground out weakly or pop it up (how many times did he pop it softly to the center fielder and slam his bat on the way to first).

    He’s gotta shorten his swing and get back to hitting line drives or immensely improve his defense or he’s of little value. It wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world if he starts at AAA like you said, but hopefully a little competition will encourage rapid progress. Don’t forget Grant Green is in the utility IF mix as well.
