Could not DISAGREE more! Assuming this to be non-keeper, Castilla is clearly the better grab. Upside and ceilings are great, and Teixeira is a terrific prospect...but Castilla is the better guy now and will be for the rest of the season. The guy will hit .280-.300 with 30 HR. Teixeira will not.

Wait so is it Castillo or Castilla?

Like it matters much.... Tex ;-D

But if you have room keep Castilla if he's one to consider and play him just at Coors.... Career splits do not tell a lie.


Stupid a nd o :-? .

Damn vowels agreed bones ;-D .

Teixeira WILL NOT hit 30 HRs??? I hope you were being sarcastic because that is just plain dumb.

He might hit the 30 HR, but the .280-.300 is unlikely...this year. He has not yet shown he can righties for average. As for the 30 HR, he might get there, but I'd say it's more likely he falls a little short of that, maybe 25 or so. The kid is a big talent on the rise, but I expect he'll really bloom in '05 as a complete hitter. Castilla is the ultimate Coors monster. Look at these numbers!

1640 AB/122 HR, 363 RBI, .338 avg

Those are his lifetime Coors numbers. He's off to a big start this season, and the "hitter friendly" weather at Coors is just arriving. I would bet money that assuming good health for both guys, Castilla beats Teixeira across the board this season.

I agree on the average part. He'll hit .270, probably. But, let's not get carried away here. Vinny hasn't hit .280 at least since 1997. Yeah, Corrs is a great hitter's back, but it isn't like the Rangers play in the Grand Canyon either. And wait until summer there. Balls will really start flying out of the yard. Yeah, Vinny is off to a great start, but you don't really think that is going to hold up in the long run, do you? And don't forget that Mark was on the DL for almost 3 weeks. With Tex now healthy, I fully expect him to get more HRs than Castilla. He has just hit 2 in the past 3 days. Castilla will get him in average, but, from here on out, Teixeira will hit more home runs, score more runs and edge out Castilla in RBIs. No doubt in my mind.
