I dumped him in my mixed league a while back for Nevin.....Guys, should I now dump Nevin (hurt today) and add Tex? ;-D


i personally love tex over nevin....better lineup, better home park, better potential. i'd do it withuot hesitation

Tex has always been viewed as a great potential hitter. He seems to be slowly fulfilling that potential. His average may still hang in the .260s-.270s, but the power sure is there.

I got rid of Hinske after dealing M. Giles and Herges for Tex and Rhodes earlier this year. Both closers suck and Giles is great, but I'm certainly happy with Tex's production. In addition, it's not like I needed a 2B, as Soriano and Kent is more than enough.

Good trade...I would've done all three for just Abreu. His power/speed is rare...

I'm still standing with Tex laughing at all the Tex doubters that gave up on him after like a month of the season. :-D

How people don't think Tex is "this" good is beyond me. He has always been a highly touted prospect with huge power potential. Not sure if he will ever hit for a high average, but many thought he was as good if not better then Blalock.

Bottem line is he's only had 763 career AB's and has 41 homers and 125 RBI allready, that's not to bad - actually that's unreal

Wasn't he banged up for the first month too?

yeah. he was hurt for the first month and had a dismal average.

but i traded blalock for glavine towards the end of may, thinking that tex (who i had on my bench) would match blalock's numbers.

well guess what? outside of blalock's UNREAL .360 ba in june, teixiera HAS matched his numbers after today. heck, in the past 30 days, texiera actually has 1 more homer!

the guy's a baller. with him and blalock on the corners and soriano in the middle, the texas infield will be a force to be reckoned with.

which is why i drafted all three this year. :-)

Tex or Mora for the 2nd half? On another topic, Burrell or Chipper the 2nd half?
