Usually its hard for a high 40s home run hitter to have a good average because they are swinging for the fences. Though .290-.300 isnt too bad.

It depends how you define "high average" hitter. Bonds, Thome, Pujols, A-Rod, Sammy, Bagwell, Thomas, Walker, etc all hit 40+ HRs with high average. Shoot, even Vinny Castilla has done it.

I disagree. I've been to alot of Rangers games this and last year and Tex can dig the ball out of the dirt like nobody's business. In 116 games at 1B last year he had 4 errors. Far better than mediocre IMO ;-D

He is far better than he is given credit for with his glove. Its just that Adrian Gonzalas is THAT good with the glove that Tex could be moved to the OF permantly if Adrian can show he is ready for the bigs in the future.
