I think the trade basically solidifies Tex as a top ten pick and not because the other back end options aren't as appealing as in other years.

I don't know about Anaheim and Atlanta's parks, but Yankee stadium should still be a pitcher's park.

I wouldn't make any major adjustment in his numbers.

I am glad I got him at the deadline last year in my OPS/BB/TB keeper. ;-D

As a Tex owner myself I was hoping he'd go to Boston or Baltimore or New York and definitely not Washington for fantasy purposes. Obviously I'd have liked to see him become a Red Sox but fantasy-wise being in the Yankees lineup isn't such a bad consolation.

I think the important thing this brings for Teixeira's fantasy value is security. In the event that he went elsewhere, aside from Boston, the potential for a teams offensive to stagnate around him was higher. There is no reason to believe the NYY are gonna stop putting up runs and RBI opportunities.

This isnt so much what Teixeiras numbers 'gained' by going to NYY, it's more a case of what it didn't lose.

he's #9 on my list, right behind Braun and just ahead of Hamilton.

I put him at R.Howard numbers minus 10-15 HRs, I don't believe that makes him a top 10 pick.


Yes I see Howard hitting .280 + in '09

I think Teix will get him by 20 BA pts.
