Derek Lee Rounding Third...


...PICK UP THE PLOW. Gunned out at home by a mile. Boy, plenty of bang-bang plays in the 6th inning. 3-2, Crew for now.
Update: Rickie, kicking the ball like Pele' circa, 1974.
Update: Rickie now throwing the ball like Macky Sasser.
Update: Cubs scratch out a couple in the 9th, win 6-4.

Can we pull the plug on Rickie Weeks yet?

You can almost see what's going through Rickie's mind as he's making these fantastic plays.

"They told me that I'm too quick in trying to turn the double play. Derrek Lee is running to first, and not particularly well, so I need to slow down and just make a good throw. OK, Rick, take your time. Make sure of the exchange. Now plant and...holy hell! Fontenot is right on top of me! I took too long! Now I have to get rid of it quick! Aaaaaaahhhhjhh!"

I'm almost positive that this is pretty much exactly what went through poor Rick's mind on that double play attempt.

Regardless of his recent troubles, I'm quite sure that Weeks is still on pace to have that breakout season in 2014. Just gotta hope that Brewer fans don't lose sight of how much potential he has.
