Weeks picks new representative

MILWAUKEE -- Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks reportedly has selected Greg Genske of Legacy Sports as his new agent, a step that at least opens the chance to re-ignite talks between the team and Weeks about a contract extension.

The Brewers had preliminary discussions with Weeks' former longtime agent, Lon Babby, but he left the business this summer to become president of the NBA's Phoenix Suns. The talks were put on hold while Weeks took his time choosing a new representative.

The Brewers' last communication with Genske was regarding CC Sabathia at the 2008 Winter Meetings in Las Vegas. Brewers general manager Doug Melvin has not year heard from Genske or his colleague, Ken Felder, regarding Weeks.

"I don't have a feel for it now," Melvin said. "With it being so close, we will probably just wait until the season ends."

Weeks launched his 24th homer of the year on Tuesday night against the Dodgers.
