I'm not sure I'd say that. Sure, his is ERA is high, but his WHIP is respectable and he has a high strikeout total. He would have more wins but he's had some bad luck on the mound (16 K loss, Roberts running into wall).

Peavy isn't pitching that bad...tex has only 6 homers in almost 3 months!

I avoided him in all leagues because I thought he wasn't going to repeat his '05 numbers, but I never thought he would be anything close to this bad

sucks for the people who wasted a top 5 pick on him }:-)

Everyone's consensus top 5 have all had their problems.

Pujols injury (unlucky)
A-Rod, Teix, Vlad, and Manny all underperforming.

But yeah, Teix is definitely performing the worst of the bunch. I wonder if the warm weather will wake up his HR swing?

DM, what is the word on Peavy? His indicators don't explain his ERA. His DIPS ERA is only 3.64 which is encouraging.

I've heard arm troubles.

Anything out of SD?

I drafted Teix and DLee 1-2 ... <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif>

(Pray ... for ... Mojo ...)

The talk regarding Teix is that once it gets more humid in Texas, the balls will carry more in Arlington. That, and he's trying to correct a swing error.

... except that it's already hot in Texas, and he's been working on it for a month. I need him producing NOW.

I've been thinking the same thing. He doesn't deserve any more excuses! ...Nice Kemp sig BTW.

Considering I traded D Lee away to get Tex, I certainly hope that doesnt' happen!! :-o

Tex is the biggest bust of the year. Even if he blows up he's still not gonna touch numbers he was expected to put up.

Man, am I sick and tired of hearing "Tex will heat up soon." People have been saying that since what...a month ago? How much home runs has he hit since then? Nada.

When he finally gets one, people will be like "OMG he's ready to catch fire."

My advice is to try to deal him after he hits his next HR.
