Brewers Have Discussed Extension With Weeks

Asked whether he's discussed an extension with Rickie Weeks, Brewers GM Doug Melvin replied in the affirmative.  Melvin added that he told Weeks last night about Corey Hart's new deal.  Weeks' agent Lon Babby was recently named president of basketball operations of the Phoenix Suns, but Melvin said that situation is between Babby and Weeks.

Weeks, 28 in September, has finally combined performance and health in 2010.  He's got a .276/.375/.488 line on the season, and with 22 home runs he trails only Dan Uggla among second basemen.  Weeks is earning $2.75MM this season, and should get a big raise for his final arbitration year in 2011 if an extension is not reached beforehand.
