LAA has also showed interest in trading for Giambi

If Atkins were traded to LAA this would kill his value. Going from the extreme hitters park to a big park, a good hitting team to one that doesn't score much... His BA, HR, R and RBI would all take a hit.

You should pray that this doesn't happen. Nightly.


Colorado isn't an extreme hitters park anymore


Just to add on:

Atkins is more of a line drive/gap hitter, so the move shouldn't affect him much at all. He'd be going to a team that would bat him higher in the lineup and, like mentioned before, might protect him with VLAD.


One trade for the Rox's I would love is Chone/Saunders for Hawpe/Atkins

;-D
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

He'd be going from what is still the best hitters park in MLB (it's not what it once was but it's still #1) to the park that has ranked #24 in runs scored over the last 3 years.

He'll go from the team that was 11th in scoring last year (with a similar lineup) to one that was 18th last year (with a similar lineup except for GMJ).

He may move up in the lineup, but LAA usually bats Vlad 3rd so he'd probably be Vlad's protection not the other way around and move from 5th to 4th in the lineup. That's not a huge change.

Hitting around a good hitter is great, and Vlad is one of the best... but he has Helton and Holliday in COL. I think that's a wash if not an upgrade over Vlad/GMJ.

His splits indicate he does hit much, much better in COL than away. Even this year while he's struggling he's hitting 40 points higher at home. And you're happy to take that away?

He will run more often in LAA, so that will be good but his HR will drop, his BA will drop at least a little (as due to the spacious CF in Coors even line-drive hitters benefit) and his R and RBI will probably drop, if not at least stay the same.

Facing the Rangers pitching will make any one a better hitter, but since he's not a big base-stealing threat I don't think the SBs will go up enough to compensate for the lowering of his HR even if the other stats stay the same.

Just don't see why this move excites anyone except AL-only owners.

Here is an article on SI.com that talks about the possibility of Teixeira being traded.

Rotoworld blurb on Teixeira:
Baseball executives are predicting that Mark Teixeira could be made available in trade talks this summer, according to SI.com's Jon Heyman.
Baltimore is the team that seemingly everyone wants to send Teixeira to, but if Teixeira really wants to go home to Maryland, the Orioles should just wait until he's a free agent after 2008 rather than give up huge pieces of their future for one of the game's most overrated hitters. Scott Boras' presence would make it tough to get an extension done, and if the Orioles were forced to give up Erik Bedard or Nick Markakis for him, they'd still be major long shots to contend in 2008 anyway. Teixeira would make more sense for a current contender, such as the Tigers or Yankees. Unfortunately, the Braves probably don't have the money to bring in the former Georgia Tech star. The Red Sox also get mentioned here, but he's not enough of an upgrade from Kevin Youkilis to make him worth parting with Youkilis and Jon Lester to acquire.


What do they have against him? One of the most overrated hitters in the game?

Teixeira will always be overvalued due to his big 2005 season IMO.
