Rickie Weeks or Rickie Henderson?
We all know that Rickie Weeks has shown glimpses of the talent he possesses that could/should make him a stud leadoff hitter. Tonight I saw some serious evidence of that. He hit his 14th career leadoff home run off of Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter (d'oh! he's on my fantasy team...shit!). Then he proceeded to draw two walks and hit a single to get on base every one of his first four plate appearances, while also effectively stealing second on a sky high pop-up he probably should have stayed on first for. Yet, he was safe and all game has been pouring gasoline on the fire that is the Brewers' offense tonight. My only beef? Those dreadlocks of his need to get longer faster.
