JJ Hardy vs Rickie Weeks & So Cal Bob

Hey So Cal Bob, remember this discussion from March of 2006? Are my posts still "as foolish as they come"? Things aren't turning out quite as you expected, are they?

-------------------------------------
old thread about Rickie Weeks
-------------------------------------

well....
.... i'm a non believer.

looks like the second coming of Michael Tucker to me. hopefully for Brewers fans he turns out better. ~ J

Size
Weeks is much bigger than Tucker.

Re: size

isn't Tucker 6'2" while Weeks is 6'0"? did you mean weight? muscle?

doesn't matter to me who is bigger. Weeks nowhere near Sheffield, R Alomar etc... that have been mentioned by others in this diary.

Gary Sheffield was an RBI machine from DAY 1. Weeks a nice 1/2 season at AAA 4 years older than Shef.

most likely Weeks will have the 3rd best career out of his INFIELD. J.J. Hardy being the best of the bunch, with Fielder a close second. i'd take Weeks 4th if Corey Hart played 3B.

again, wish Weeks the best. nothing he's done yet screams ALL STAR to me. perhaps a faint whisper.... ~ J

Wow
You seriously think out of the three, HARDY will have the best career? Maybe the longest, but I seriously doubt the best.

Weeks
How does Tucker compare to Weeks at all?

Also people seem to overrating a some 200 AB's from Hardy in the second half of last year. Nothing else shows that he will have a more productive career then Fielder/Weeks.

weeks, hardy, etc...
how does Tucker compare to Weeks? both smaller college, both 2B with glove troubles. both touted as some of the best hitters in their respective drafts. both lots of hype coming up the system without lots of #'s to back it up.

we shall see how the rest plays out. i was paying close attention every step of the way to Tucker long ago, and this feels the same SO FAR.

HARDY ~ yes, i think he will be the best of all. plays the toughtest position, and plays his better than either Weeks or Fielder.

essentially jumped from AA, missed nearly the entire year, then surfaces in the Majors. THAT is a jump. of course he would struggle at first. don't sell the 2nd half #'s short. 2nd half wouldn't mean as much if he had actually played the previous year.

in the 100 ABs he did get in 2004 was on pace for 50 2B / 20 HR / 100 RBI. good height, will develop more power.

and even making the huge jump last year he still walked as much as he K'd. that will continue to improve.

so yes, all around i expect JJ Hardy to have the best career of the Brewers infield.

[new] your posts
are about as foolish as they come.  You need to read up more on Weeks and his career and what the professional talent evaluators have to say.

Michael Tucker?  C'mon.  What's next you will tell Twins fans that Liriano is the next Felix Heredia?
