You forgot McCann and the fact he's playing for 2008 paycheck.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but Arlington is NOT a hitters park by most measures I've seen. It's somewhere in the middle of the road actually.

Texas hitters had a lot of value back when they had gusy like Soriano and Arod around them. These days, I would much rather have Teix batting in the Atlanta lineup. That also gets him away from Angel and A's pitching and lumped in with the NL east, which seems a little bit easier to me.

If he does go to Atlanta, I wouldn't expect much of a change at all. He's not really as impacted by his park as people make him out to be. His AVG seems to be lifted by being in Texas, but his power numbers, which are all that really matters, are fairly neutral.

I would think being on a winning franchise would only help him out, so he might just move up a notch, too.

On a related note, what's the supposed offer?

If it's obvious it's probably true.

And as far as his splits are concerned, they've evened out over the last 1 1/2 yrs and probably won't have too great of an impact over only an 8-week span.


Agree with this. An additional point is that some guys just hit better at home, not matter which ballpark, due a comfort level or other factors. It is a mistake think that home/road splits are always driven by the ballpark.

You know what's wrong with that article, Kelly? They don't mention the Yankees until the very end.

Disgraceful.

Quick question: If Salty gets traded to the Rangers, does he finish out the season as starting catcher?

Its been reported that the Braves have offered Jarrod Saltalmacchia, Matt Harrison and Elvis Andrus to the Rangers for Mark Teixeira...I really don't think the Rangers are gonna get a better offer than this and I'd be very suprised if Teix didn't end up a Brave

I also think that the move to Atlanta will boost his numbers, the improvement of offense around him with renteria, kjohnson, mccann and the two jones can only help

I really wonder what Texas is thinking getting rid of him, even though it looks certain they will ship him somewhere.

They don't have many guys who are good enough to build around. If they trade their best player for prospects, I think the AL West is going to be a 3-team division for the next five years+... You really only have to worry about holding onto Kinsler, Young and Teix... why not pony up the money for a home-grown star rather than hoping to do better with the money in the FA market?

I'm a huge A's fan, but considering our lack of (any) hitting at the moment, the Mariners ups-and-downs, and the Angels recent resistance to big signings, why shop a guy who could drive in 125+ runs next year for prospects? Despite Anaheim's recent surge, it's not like this is the AL East.
