Keith Law- ESPN chat

This is from a Keith Law chat on espn.com Friday afternoon.  Just in case anyone thinks calling for Ned's head is irrational, look at the second question.  I am sure we will have many postmortems  during the off season, but I agree that Braun has to move to the outfield and Hall should move to third.  Also, I would bet that almost every season preview of the Brewers next year will mention Ned losing his mind and plunking Pujols.

Alex (Princeton): So, what series will you be watching this weekend? Brewers-Pads, Rocks-DBacks, Mets-Marlins or Phils-Nats? Which teams do you think have the best chance of surviving and making it to the NLDS?

Keith Law: (2:16 PM ET ) All but the Brewers-Padres series - I think the Brewers are finished, and Capuano was 83-86 when I saw him last month, which is good news for the Padres.

Shawn (MN): Now that the Brewers are basically done, what do you think they should be looking to add in the offseason? Any good middle relievers going to be available? Any starters they should be targeting?

Keith Law: (2:22 PM ET ) I believe more in developing your own middle relievers, rather than edwading them on the free agent market. I think their top priorities are as follows: 1. New manager. 2. Getting everyone in the right positions, which to me means Braun in LF or even CF, Hall at 3b, and deciding on Weeks at 2b or CF. 3. Catcher.

Chris (madison): Keith, Rickie Weeks has a 1.000+ OPS since being recalled in mid-August. He has hit more than half his season's HRs (8) in September. He has a .235 BA, but a .375 OBP (.490+ OBP since July). Is he FINALLY showing what he can do once he gets healthy at-bats? What kind of ceiling do you give him, if he has one?

Keith Law: (3:30 PM ET ) I wrote in a chat right after my Chicago trip that I thought Weeks was going to be a star. The only thing holding him back is his defense.
