Christmas present = Tex signs elsewhere.
New Years present = slegna buy another closer, wasting a draft pick.
Their yahoo depth chart has Robb Quinlan/Kendry Morales as their 1B/DH.
Pre - Allstar 2008 they scored 409 runs, good for 23rd in baseball.
Post - Allstar (with Tex) they scored 356 runs, 5th in MLB.
If they don't sign someone like a Dunn/Burrell/Giambi/Abreu because this $8.5 mil has made them unaffordable, it will be very amusing.
