After dropping a throw to him covering first base Rickie Weeks should be fearing for his job. If the Brewers have not thought about tossing this clown down to double A or even single A by now, they should really start reconsidering. There is a reason the Brewers made it to the playoffs. Suevm had enough common sense to take someone batting .222 out of the lead off spot and that has helped produce a couple extra runs. He also stopped playing Rickie every day.
This is why I was so surprised to see him starting the game on Wednesday. Rickie has no business starting a playoff game. Ray Durham should be the starter.
I'm just saying Rickie is "suppose" to be a "professional" baseball player. This is all he does. This is his life. And you are telling me he can't catch a ball thrown to him from the other side of the pitchers mound to first base?
BOTTOM LINE. Rickie Weeks is a JOKE! He should not start any more games this season and the Milwaukee Brewers should seriously consider either trading him or telling him to find another job as a professional dog walker. I for one think he would probably drop the ball on that one too and probably lose my dog.
