Josh Hamilton or Mark Teixeira

Postby JimJackson » Fri Feb 25, 2011 3:44 pm

I continuously run into this problem in the second round and I can never make a definitive decision. I have a man crush on Hamilton but his injury risk is slightly worrisome. I see Teixeira bouncing back with a decent average since it looks like last year was an outlier. Who would you pick???

I think I would go Teixeira.

They both hit in tremendous lineups, but 1B is a bit harder to fill than OF--that's usually the deciding factor for me. That's why I tend to go Cano/Longoria in the 1st round if I can help it over guys like Crawford/Braun. There are a lot of great OF out there--infield is a bit tougher to fill.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)
