Beltran was injured in 05 so at least he had an excuse.

Also, Teixeira was taken 3rd, 4th overall and produced like an 8th rounder. That is a bust in my book.


Injury or not, Beltran was still a major bust. Worse than Teix this year. Drafted from 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th OVERALL and performing like a waiver wire scrub made him a bust.

Teixiera a bust? Fine. I drafted him this year, and I'll do so again next year and with a smile on my face. Twenty one post ASB HR's, to go along with 105RBI's on the year with a week left is more than enough to select him again in 07.


Yep put a big smile on your face when you draft him in the first round again next year.
Yeah just write him off after one bad half of baseball


Am I writing him off how? Are you going to pick him in the first round next year?
I have him in a dynasty league, so it does not really matter.You make it sound like the guy couldnt return to first round material.People could reap the benefits of him next year taking a chane on him early.Thats what so great about risk/reward

Yes he will be fine next year. He could rebound no question. I just wanted him to do bad to:

1. Prove a point
2. So I can steal him next year but now it doesn't look so good :-D

9 hr at the all star break.

with a few games left he has 32 homeruns and 109 RBI.

despite all the people dissapointed, i doubt he makes it out of the 2nd round next year.

he wont in my leagues because ill take him.

Chalk it up as a first half fluke people. Take Tex in the second and do a happy dance.

He won't make it out of the second in any leagues. With each passing day this season looks less and less like a complete bust. Sure, I'd have liked 40HR's out of a top 5 pick, but can I really complain when the guy has 32HR's and 109RBI's? The fact that he is absolutely mashing in the second half makes this season a lot easier to digest.

I agree, I'm starting to think late first round might be his avg draft position. Damn it! (although I am enjoying the production) ;-)

Tex has put up some fairly ludicrous #'s in the second half, to the tune of 23 homers & 60 rbi's. Short of Howard, I do not know another hitter who has been close.

BTW, can we finally dispense with the absurd theory that Tex is made by his ballpark. Last year, he has 13 homers & 56 rbi's away from home (26 homers & 112 rbi's, extrapolated). This year, he's got 20 homers & 61 rbi's away from home. I fully expect Tex to be a monster again next year. Now that the thouroughly ridiculous notion that he cannot hit on the road can be put to bed, Tex will put up numbers worthy of a first round pick next year.
