Anyway, Tex and his lovely wife had their first kid right before the season started. Anybody think that those sleepless nights might have something to do w/ his slow start. I think the home/road splits might support this theory a little bit. Just throwing it out there.
Also, for the record, I think he'll turn it around.
Somebody actually did a study on this at one point in the past...don't remember where I read it but atheletes usually perform better after the birth of their first and second children and worse after the third and beyond (getting worse after every new kid).
As the father of a 6 year old daughter and twin 2 year old boys I can vouch for that pattern.
