send rodriguez to the curb. He doesnt have the job, and if he was going to get it he would of had it by now. Get burroghs and plug him in till Tex breaks outta slump. Right now overbay is doing that for me.

Felix would be th obvious choice to drop. I just picked up Hudson yesterday (I dropped Lius Castillo). I want to hold on to Hudson. If he is legit, I can trade him later...

Good time to assess Tex's carrer performance as he hit the 162 career game mark on Tuesday so you get an idea of a "full season" of work.

G 162
HR 30
RBI 94
K 137
BB 58
SB 2
BA .252
OBP. 334

Now remember he was 23-24 when he put up these numbers ... not bad.

Potential is great in theory ... but in practice it doesn't help me being stuck with his sub .200 BA.

Easiest answer of the night. Adios, Felix Rodriguez. So maybe he gets a handful of save opps in a mix with Herges. Then again, maybe he doesn't, and there's no guarantee he converts what he gets. I'd take Burroughs over Felix Rodriguez in a moment.

Here's all you need to know about Felix Rodriguez.

Alex Rodriguez....ARod.
Ivan Rodriguez...I Rod.
Francisco Rodriguez...KRod.

Felix Rodriguez...no nickname. If you've got the Rodriguez without a nickname, you've got the wrong Rodriguez.

That's a great, scientific analysis. I love it, and it's correct. Dump Felix and get Burroughs.

As of today Tex is 14/69, which adds up to roughly .203.

Let's do some math.

how many hits does he need to get over the next two weeks to get his average to something more tolerable, like, say, .280?

Over two weeks the rangers will play 12 games... say he gets 3.5 at bats per game (allowing for walks and things of that nature) So he will have 42 at bats.

(14+HITS)/(69+42) = .280

this leads to HITS equal to about 17. So if teixeira hits .404 over the next two weeks his average will be at .280?

is this possible? yes. is it probably? maybe. the point is that all it will take is one short hot streak to bump him up to a good average.

even if he only hits 400 for the next week his average overall will go up to about .244 if he hits .500 it'll be at .277

small number statistics can be deceiving. . .

OK, I didn't pick up Burroughs after all. Instead I picked up Orlando Hudson on May 11th. I benched Rentaria for now, moved Mike Young to SS and put Hudson at 2B. Hudson is "en fuego" right now!!! Also, I think Tex is starting to heat up, which is a good sign. I'll tried to trade for Blalock by offering Beckett or Carlos Zambrano, buth his owner wouldn't budge. I'll hold on to Hudson for now. He has high trade value right now so I may move him...
