He's be good for 35-100+

The WBC at-bats, or the lack thereof probably has had a hand in his power outage right now. He'll be fine.

Manny hit his first hr last yr on April 16th Homer less so far 5 days later. He ended up with 39 I think and 144 rbi. The big boppers get them and sometimes in pairs. They will both explode soon. Just hold on and enjoy the ride.

He looked bad tonight in 2 ABs. He was pressing tonight after seeing his teammates do all the damage. I still have no fear that he'll be fine, but tonight is the first night I've seen him press. He looked terrible on back to back off-speed pitches when he was trying to crush fast balls in one at bat.

As frustrating as it is to see all of those runs and still not Teixeira damage, keep him in your lineup. He's going against Edwin Jackson tomorrow in Arlington. ;-)

I'll keep him in, but it's fustrating to see him leave tons and tons of people on base stranded.

That is actually not at all accurate. If you use only his road numbers from last year and prorate them over an entire season, then he would still hit 26 homers and have around 110 rbi's. So, yes, he puts up excellent numbers at home, but his road numbers, are still good.
Tex will be fine. He has had a slow 4-6 first weeks every year that he has been in the league so far.

Again, that is simply not true. IF it were, then how do you explain 13 homers and 50+ rbi's on the road last year? Yes, he hits in a hitters park and gets excellent numbers there. But let's not make it seem like he is a Coors hitter away from Coors.
