Tex's last month stats are:
22 R, 9 HR, 26 RBI, 1 SB, 318 BA
Is he THAT good? probably not, but to say this is a sh!tty little hot streak is flat out dumb. I pegged him as a huge sleeper earlier this year, and in most leagues I made what I was beginning to feel was the "wrong" decision between he and Miguel Cabrera, whom I placed in the same category.
I said a couple of weeks ago, though, when Tex was starting to get hot, that I'll bet he at least matches Cabrera for the rest of the season. Anybody think that's an out of line prediction about now?
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.
Although you were smart to reason that Tex would match Blalock, I'd still way rather have Blalock than Glavine.
I have to say that in my about ten fantasy leagues, I own Tex and Blalock more than anyone else, and right now, I'm feeling pretty damn good about it.
