Since everything seemed to be click for Rickie Weeks — a point that seemed to come, judging by his stats, in the 2010 season — the Milwaukee Brewers second baseman had been a picture of consistency.

His batting average had rarely fallen below .250. In fact, most of his statistical categories remained around the same mark since that season — a testament to his ability to deal with adjustments. No baseball season is without them, and for Weeks, they'd always worked.

That is, until the beginning of the 2012 season. Nothing seemed to be working for Weeks. And as stoic and proud of a player that Weeks is, even he admitted he didn't know what was wrong. The only way he knew to answer the problem was to keep doing what he was doing. For a while, that didn't work.
