2B Rickie Weeks, Milwaukee Brewers: I know second base is shallow and I know what Weeks has been capable of in the past. I've always been a Weeks apologist, but things have just gone too far this season. He's hitting .199/.298/.314 and has just four homers and four steals. Even while his batting average fell off a cliff last year, he maintained value by hitting 21 homers and stealing 16 bases. Without either of those, there's simply no reason to own him.
