I cut bait with Teix the other day, I am still going to wait on Borbon a little longer.

I don't see the comparisons between teix and Borbon. You have a proven stud vs someone who had a decent fourth of a year. So Teix is offer is not a "red flagging" as Borbon.
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

Teix is going to be a bust this year. I watched all his 16 ABs. Yuck. I cut him for Vernon Wells the other day.

With how bad Teix has looked, and how good Vernon has looked during week 1, I would be surprised if Teix matched Well's final line this year.

Yo BRO, you know the deal. Teix sucks fist half. Why should I roster a 2nd half player??

Now Vernon Wells , he is the truth.

Teix always plays poorly in April.

You can pretty much ignore April completely.

Having said that I wasn't all that high on Borbon to begin with and I think eventually he'll be batting 9th and not have much value so if you have a good player on the waiver wire I don't hate picking them up. I'd rather keep Borbon on the bench than drop him though since the high SB guys always have some value at least. Out of that Davis, Morgan, Pierre etc group of SB guys with no power I had Borbon pretty low on the list.

Teix is not a valid or even well reasoned comparison to Julio Borbon. Not really funny ethier.

There is a huge difference between asking if someone is unlucky or a bust, i.e. Julio, when he has never had a pro career. We all know what Teix will and wont do. That is why he is a round 1-2 talent. People have no idea about Julio that is why the OP asked this question.

All that said, I do agree that there needs to be a little more patience.
