Milwaukee's All-Star second baseman injured his ankle back on July 27. Since then, the Brewers have rattled off an amazing 24-6 record with Jerry Hairston filling the void in Roenicke's lineup, which begs the question: Could Milwaukee actually be better off with Weeks on the bench?
It's a ridiculously absurd question to mull over, but then again, is it?
Speculation says the club may be better off not rushing Weeks' comeback rather than put him in harm's way once more.
Team chemistry is invaluable during the final month of the regular season, and with the way Milwaukee has been performing with Hairston in the lineup, it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility for Roenicke to stick with his current lineup.
When Weeks is ready for a comeback, he'll need to prove his worth and get back to doing what he does best.
