Heard the Dodger interested in Glass, I mean Glaus. He would go home to his glory years in SoCal.

how can you possibily say tex is a 32/100 guy? the last THREE seasons

38/112
43/144
33/110

and then this year 8/29 so far...

spot on ;-D ;-7

if you think 43 144 was an aberration thats fine. but how can you not call him 35-38/110 MINIMUMLY. AND he just turned 27. jeeze :-°

Well his average is 38. You move him out of a hitter friendly stadium and you are looking at a 30 HR guy.

He's a good hitter but his 2005 season was so ridiculously good that people expect him to repeat it. I do think that he will reach those numbers again if he stayed in Texas or moved to another great hitter friendly environment but... We are talking about Boras' client here. You know he is going to be overpaid. Very few of his clients are underpaid.

Some people get really caught up with his home/road splits. I agree his production would take a hit but he wouldn't go from a 40 HR threat to a 20 HR hitter either. He'll balance out around 30 HR even in a park like Detroit, IMO. He's a great hitter and would really benefit from guys like Maggs and Sheff in the lineup around him.

Yeah not 20/85 is ridiculous. He's too good to put up numbers like that. I like him a lot but Teixeira tends to get overrated quite a bit and that's why I can never get him.

Exactly. Wasn't everyone talking about how bad Soriano was going to be hurt moving from Texas to Washington? That worked out OK. Plus, if Tex went to Baltimore, that's not exactly like going to Shea or Dodger Stadium.

Regarding Soriano, he is the exception rather than the rule.
