Teixeira is slated to move to the OF next year when they promote Adrian Gonzalez, who also has a good deal of potential offensively, and is already a defensive whiz at 1B.

Bored sh!tless so i did a quick comparison:

Texas:
HR - 53
RBI - 178
R - 177
SB - 18
AVG - .298

St Louis:
HR - 45
RBI - 182
R - 200
SB - 29
AVG - .308

* Note I classed Womack as St Louis 2B, he has roughly the same amount of at bats, but something to keep in mind.

Of course Fantasy stats alone don't describe how good an infield is, but i thought it woul be interesting to compare the 2 teams offensively from fantasy.

Offensively it's New York

Defensively it's St. Louis

Texas is somehwere in-between both. They are younger than the other two so they'll be a great infield for longer.

That's definitely NY bias there, Teixeira is just as good, if not better, than Giambi this year....Young >= Jeter, A-Rod > Blalock, Soriano >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Cairo/Wilson

Ok well if you are talking about this year, then yes. I just like to give hitters like Young, Blalock and Teixiera more than 3 months to determine that they are 'great' or the best.

Do you want to talk about next year then? Wow, it excites me just to imagine what kind of numbers tex and blaylock will put up next year. :-)
