What to do with Teixiera?

Postby LCBOY » Wed May 12, 2004 8:33 pm

Tex is really dragging me down at 3B. He is my only 3B. Should I drop him for Burroughs? I play in a H2H league w ith 13 offensive categories

R, Hits, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR RBI, SB, CS, BB, K, E, BA

I have plenty of power on my team

Manny
Beltran
Ortiz
Dye
Giles
M. Young
Sexton

Burroughs couild help me with BA, hits, runs singles, eve na few steals. What do you guys think?

Hell no. Tex will be fine eventually.

Giles and Ortiz's averages will go up soon. Your team can afford to have Tex's .275-.280 BA and still finish high every week in BA due to your .300 hitters (Manny, Beltran, Giles).

I agree. I'd hang onto him.

He's my 1B/3B backup for Sexson and M. Cabrera, so I'm having to play him now with Sexson out. He's struggling now, but I noticed that a game or two ago he walked 4 times...to me that means he wants to see a lot of pitches in order to feel more comfy at the plate. He's probably just a little uncomfortable at the plate after his off-time due to injury. I have faith that he'll be solid in the second half.

I would stick with him. If Burroughs is available surely you have someone else on your roster who is expendable. ;-D

8-o Maybe Hudson or Padilla? You're solid there with Young, Beckett, Zambrano, and Prior when he comes back. Am I crazy to think that if Burroughs is on the ww you shouldn't go after him? :-[ That is a great team any way though.
