But after going 1-for-5 against the Astros on Thursday night, Weeks had two hits in his last 32 at-bats, a National League-worst .156 batting average and an NL-worst 49 strikeouts.
"There are some things I couldn't really control, where I was trying to overcompensate for some things. The biggest thing is, try to go back to the basics and go from there. That's what I'm doing."Weeks declined to talk about his conversation with Roenicke before Friday's lineup was posted. Roenicke said it was positive, calling Weeks "a team player." "Even though he's got a lot of pride and he knows he's going to hit, he was OK with being moved," Roenicke said. "I don't like to [move players in the lineup] a lot. But once guys start hitting like they should, we'll see where everybody slots in that makes the most sense." The Brewers were 16-22 going into Friday's game. They ranked ninth out of 16 National League teams in runs scored, thanks in large part to 42 home runs, second-most in the league. But the Brewers were 11th in on-base percentage and 14th in batting average. "This isn't Rick's fault, what we're doing offensively," Roenicke said. "It's the whole group. Offensively, we're not good as a group."
