No real reason, just adding prospects I feel will have more value down the line. Weeks will probably never develop much power and it seems like he's running a little over his head right now in the majors.

I'd have traded for him

By the way I do agree Weeks is playing over his head right now, but you can never have too many MI in this league.

Yeah I kind of agree. I made moves based on the current scoring system. He says it won't change values much but I don't like it

Quote:
In an effort to come up with an alternative, I’ve been fiddling with a modified points system that includes point penalties for hits allowed. I’ll provide discussion of the methodology at the end of the post, so scroll down for that. But here’s what I’ve come up with: IP: +7.4
K: +2
H: -2.6
BB: -3
HBP: -3
HR: -12.3
SV: +5
HLD: +4
The only differences between this system and FanGraphs Points are the points attributed to innings (previously +5), hits (previously 0), and home runs (previously -13).

The pitchers who get the biggest bump moving to this new system are those who have an ERA that is substantially better than their FIP: Justin Verlander (+108 pts), Jared Weaver (+87 pts), Josh Beckett (+84 pts), etc. And the pitchers hurt the most are (mostly) those who have had FIP’s smaller than their ERA: Chris Carpenter (-47 pts), Jeff Francis (-65 pts), Jake Westbrook (-63 pts), etc. So, what we’re doing in this system is rewarding pitchers for getting “lucky” and penalizing pitchers for getting “unlucky.”
