Tex in keeper leagues and leagues he qualifies for 3b, Thomas otherwise, but just slightly.

I take Tex for the potential to do better than what Thomas does. I think he should at least equal Thomas' output this year. JMO

I'd stick with Thomas. He'll have his ups and downs, but if you just leave him in there he'll have nice totals at the end of the year, especially if you have expanded categories including walks.

I'd take thomas as well. Tex's injury is going to nag him all year in my opinion, I don't expect this to be his big break out year, that'll come next year when he's healthy.

This year, I would want Thomas just because of Tex's injury. For keeper leagues, I would rather have Tex because of the huge potential.

ya it really nagged him. he hit 2 homeruns in the first 3 games he was back :-? If your in a league that counts walks, Tex has been getting walked a lot, so dont count him out there. I like Tex cuz of his potential.

Thomas...I actually asked myself this question at the beginning of the season. Lot of people are and were hyping Tex, but Thomas is likely the better choice. Kind of have to like the Rangers' lineup though...
