What's with Teix?

Postby pmd » Fri May 01, 2009 11:59 am

Is he OK, or should I dump him on an unsuspecting rival?

first time owning Teix? The guy is a career .252 hitter in April. Not to mention a career .274 batter Pre-ASB and .303 Post-ASB.

He's going to always start slow, just hold onto him and wait it out. He'll heat up as the weather heats up.

I'd dump him for Andruw Jones. Teixeira is TERRIBLE!

In fact, maybe now, or soon, would be the time to buy low on him. Not only does he always struggle in April, but he is also bound to improve once A-rod gets into the lineup.

Tex is very famous for being a slow starter... most experienced fantasy leaguers draft him knowing that they're gonna take their lumps with the guy in April, but reap the rewards tenfold as the season progresses.

I don't see why this year would bring anything different. Dude is also only around 28-29 years old, so he's still in his prime. He'll get in a groove, I guarantee it.

Yes, quickly dump on some unsuspecting fool Tex's 40 HRs, 120 RBIs and .400 OBP.

No offense to anyone on this site, but how many years do baseball fans have to go through before they realize there are 162 games, not 30? I get a kick out of Subject lines that start with "time to drop...." looking for names like Teixera, BJ Upton, Cliff Lee, CC, and maybe even Hanley Ramirez at some point. Do any of you really think that barring injury, players of that caliber just plain forgot how to play?

I hope people keep thinking like this, because I'll keep making trades with them and winning leagues.

Well if your referring to the people who replied, we were all being sarcastic. Obviously this topic is rediculous but some people just dont know a lot about baseball or this could be their first time playing fantasy and there aint nothing wrong with that
