Good lord... whoever dropped Tex should be booted from the league. That's about the dumbest move ever.

I know... He dropped Tex for Adrain Gonzalez. Not only did he drop Tex, he dropped Furcal last week who I was also able to pick up. The same day he dropped Tex he also dropped Damon (who is on the FA's right now) and Erik Bedard.

I think that he figured the team that dropped Tex would be a WW # <8 and would not pick him up. Therefore, that's one team from 7, meaning there were 6 teams that passed on the pick up.

Even in an 8 team league, how do you drop a guy like Teixeira? :-?
