Teix WILL hit more HRs now that he will have protection for the first month of the year via A-Rod, go look at his numbers from April last year, if you figure he played in April like he did during the rest of the months, he's a 45 HR guy.
Lets leave the NAME out of this:
35/120 and a .300 average is not first round material. PERIOD.
I dont care if he hits moonshots, laserbeams, or Monster mashes.... We are talking fantasy baseball right? Its about the numbers and position eligibility.
First base is the DEEPEST position in baseball. TEX is going 6th overall at MDC. Thats absolutely insane. Ahead of Prince? and Howard? Thats a joke, he should be in the 13-18 range.
You might want to check TEX's stats from april and may EVERY YEAR before you say with arods protection he's going to hit 45. Then you'd notice that Texiera is a traditionally slow starter.
April/March a career .249 hitter
Doesn't matter wherehe's hit with who in front of him or behind him.
What makes TEX a first rounder over miggy, prince, howard, kemp, lincecum, mauer, and longo?
He doesn't steal, he doesn't play at a scarce position, and he's not worth a first round pick....
