This year 4 HR 22 RBI and batting .272
He has almost double the walks he had last year though, so he's being pitched around since his SO count is up. His OBP is actually higher this year than last year. It doesn't help his protection in the lineup was Blalock/Soriano/Dellucci last year, all <.275 hitters, and his protection this year is Nevin, who's batting .226. He needs somebody behind him so he'll actually get pitches to hit.
Son of a gun. Botts is in for Nevin and Blalock and Mench are hitting 4-5 today.

Yes, that's what I was hoping for drafting in the 1st, possibly getting 30-100 out him.
30-100 is like 4th round material...might as well have drafted Konerko.
he was being sarcastic "why would I ever draft someone who MAY get 30-100 in the 1st round."
And Konerko is such a steal. Essentially a lock for 35-100-100
I know he was being sarcastic, im not stupid. I was just affirming his point that Texeira will not put up first-round numbers this season.
Look if he is going to hit me 30 HR the rest of the way then I won't complan but for god's sake I draft him expects at least 40 HR from him, I could have pick up Vald, so I guess us Tex owners do have the right to bash him..............

Another one who passed Vlad for Tex. If you're in a Roto I guess there's room to complain but if it's a H2H every week is different. I have Tex in 2 H2H leagues, one I'm in first and one I'm in dead last, I don't blame either success or failure on just Teix, it's a whole team.
