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.

Sounds like a plan to me.

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. . .
This guy won't hit .280 this year. He is a great young player but at this stage of his career being the power hitter that he is, he will never be any better than a .250 - .260 hitter as I predicted before the season started. Most others were tipping a .300 season for him in here.

One other thing to think about, and this always seems to happen to me, if you just dump Teix, your most hated opposing owner will pick him up and eat you alive. Tex will go on a ten-game tear where he gets 23 hits in 45 AB and has 6 HR with 12 RBI and a couple of SB.
If you don't think things like that happen, check out Richard Hidalgo over the past two seasons.
Our league went to OBP instead of BA this year, so he's not hurting me nearly as much as he would in many leagues. (That 4 BB day was pretty neat!)
