He's what? 22? and he's hitting in AA, with no power at all from a power position. And he's still seen as one of the top 5 1B prospects in the minors. Is it because of the sad state of the minor league right now or does he have some hidden upside that I just don't see now.

BTW: I own him, and hope the answer to the hidden upside is yes.

He was hurt for most of this season with the same type of injury Pujols had. Its very hard to get power behind a swing with and abdominal problem. He just came of the injury list, look for him to hit for power in the second half. ;-D

wait, wait? Teixeira? The good version or the Mark Grace version?


and wait, wait, I thought they moved him to 3rd. I can't imaging such a big guy playing 2nd...well, Glaus played SS for a while so I guess it's possible.

he did move to 3rd, mis typed sorry. The good version of Tex, maybe a little lower. Another problem with wes's power numbers is that he plays in huge pithcers ballpark, not many HR's are hit out of there.

Bankston has the ability to hit .270-.280 with 25 HRs a year... not Tex, but light years better offensively than what they currently have (Travis Lee).
