Beltran was injured in 05 so at least he had an excuse.
Also, Teixeira was taken 3rd, 4th overall
and produced like an 8th rounder. That is a bust in my book.
Injury or not, Beltran was still a major bust. Worse than Teix this year. Drafted from 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th OVERALL and performing like a waiver wire scrub made him a bust.
Teixiera a bust? Fine. I drafted him this year, and I'll do so again next year and with a smile on my face. Twenty one post ASB HR's, to go along with 105RBI's on the year with a week left is more than enough to select him again in 07.
