Fielder, Kintzler, Marcum, Weeks or Wolf: Who Will Be Brewer Of The Week?

New, 23 comments

This was a tough week for the Brewers, as they've gone 1-6 since last Friday. That makes it pretty hard to come up with five solid candidates for Brewer of the Week. With that said, not everyone has been terrible this week and a couple of Brewers have actually been pretty good. Here are this week's nominees:

Prince Fielder is only batting .192 this week, but three of his five hits have been home runs so he's slugging .577.

Brandon Kintzler made three relief appearances this week, including two multi-inning stints, and allowed just one earned run over four innings for a 2.25 ERA.

Shaun Marcum made two excellent starts this week, allowing just one run on eight hits over 14 innings (0.64 ERA). He's walked just three while striking out 14 over that span.

Rickie Weeks had a hit in six of the Brewers' seven games this week, including the only hit against Tim Hudson on Wednesday. He's hitting .280/.379/.400 on the week.

Randy Wolf allowed one run on just four hits over seven innings against the Astros on Saturday, walking two and striking out four.

I think the choice is pretty easy, but it's up to you.
