No offense but trading a first round caliber player doing poorly for a player doing poorly as well but with 3rd round capabilities at best and then expecting something good out of it is not really bad luck

Statistics do not support this theory. When he is on, he hits everywhere.

his overall numbers this year will probably make tex a bust considering he was an overall #4 pick and most of us who took him at that position were expecting 40/130/.300...he may eke out 30/110. still, for those of us who are still contending in our leagues, it doesn't matter what he did in the first half, we just need him to tear it up in the 2nd half. with sheff and now thome sitting out for a number of games, tex's HR output has been a blessing...

as of 5/02: 2nd place; 5/27: 6th

Just noticed that Mark Tiexiera's last 6 home runs have all been solo shots. That's terrible.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

Yeah, it would be nice if someone were on base, but you cant really blame Tex for that. Fact of the matter is, at least he is finally hitting homeruns, solo or not.

I know it's just dumb luck, but it's frustrating when you consider that Young is sporting an OBP of .296 (lots of room to grow that one) since the break and Matthews is at a whopping .372 since the break.

Very very frustrating.

It isn't really Teix's fault...From what I've seen the last couple of days, he has been leading off an inning almost every at bat. Once Carlos Lee starts to heat up in a Rangers uni, then you will see Teix start blasting 2 or 3 run shots...Maybe even a grand slam ;-)
