before I say what I am gonna say it will seem weird to you but just think about it.
My theory is a curse that is in the AL West, The people who have been victim's of the curse are Beltre, coming from the dodgers hitting 46 homeruns the previous year and and complete dud with the mariner's, same with his teammate sexson, he did well last year but has also been a dud this year, curse anyone ?
Now Teixeira and m. young are going thru on the rangers.
On the angels it was S. Finley who hit 37 homeruns for the diamondbacks the previous year and was a complete dud with the angels. plus his teammates are feeling it and did feel it (Glaus), now its G. Anderson. And V. Guerrero hasn't been as good when he was with the expos.
The athletics it was D. Justice a couple years ago. And J. Kendall as the current player going thru it.
It seems players in the AL WEst get their power taken away, a curse or just imagining it ?
