Texas is a distinct hitters park. One of the best with the wind currents and hot dry air. Especially for left-handed hitters and Tex's main punch is left-handed.

Atlanta, heavy, muggy, stale air, and one of the worst for left-handed power.

Also, AL hitters worth significantly more than than NL hitters cuz lineups can sustain rallies..no auto outs which is a Major rally killer.

Don't view the lineups as all that significantly different.. although C Jones does double the slugging hitter total..both lineups have good hitters, but A. Jones gets himself out mostly..and the ss and catcher can hit which is a mitigating factor in alleviating rally kill jobs.

All in all, think Tex value takes a hit if it happens, but wouldn't bother with it..may not go through, and, who knows, maybe Tex needs a change of scenery to a team with less side stuff going on.

Why? Because he is going to demand crazy money via Scott Boras.

And any other FA hitter of his talent won't demand the same crazy money?

You were wondering why they are shopping him. They know Teixeira and Boras will ask for the moon and the stars. He had one monster season and everyone expects him to repeat it year after year. If you ask me, he is a very good young player that someone will overpay for his services.

I also think there might be an "A-Rod" fear in play here (meaning that the Rangers don't think it's worth it to pay $20 million+ to a hitter, no matter how good). Have they signed any big FA bats since A-Rod left? I can't think of any.....
