hinske or tex?

Postby kingman2003 » Mon Jun 30, 2003 4:52 pm

who is going to help me more? the hitting categories are; R, HR, RBI, AVG, OBP, Ks, and SBs. I figure that they are both going to hurt equally in Ks, Hinske should steal a couple of bases, and Tex should hit more HRs. What do you guys think? I'm leaning towards Hinske, already has a solid year under his belt and is in the better lineup. Thanks.

For the rest of this year I say Hinske, as long as he shows no further wrist problems. Tor is on a tear which also helps. Next year on belongs to Tex.

When you type "Tex" for short I hope you're not saying "TEX" as in Texas. In case you're more of a fantasy guru than a baseball guru, it's pronounced [teh-share-uh] not [tee-ex-air-uh] or anything like that.

I'll take Teixeira (this is the correct spelling) ;-) . Hinske wasn't producing before the injury even though the team was crushing the ball. I'm not sold on him. I think he will do better next year, but for the rest of this season, I'd go with Tex.
