He still has a moonshot way to go to reach those #'s in less than 400 AB's.. I think you will see a mediocre 8-10 HR, 45 RBI split at the AS break. Good Luck!


I honestly do not know what everyone was thinking preseason ranking Teixeira as high as #3 on draft boards when clearly there were better hitters.

I think it's still too early to call him a complete bust. He's young and has the talent to turn it around. All he needs is to heat up for a month or two.

That being said, if he puts up no more than 25-28 HR this year, he will be a huge bargain for next year's draft.

The first round of this year's draft completely sucked if you were picking 6-7-8.

It was an absolute crap-shoot between Tex, Lee (I didn't think he could duplicate last year, and now he's out anyways), Tejada (coming off a bad year) and Santana (pitcher, yuck).

I would have been much happier at 10-11-12.

I am almost always happier in the 10-11-12 range. This year especially so. Although I liked the #1 or #2 spot this year where I got Pujols...even if he ends up out the entire 6 weeks his end of season numbers are going to be staggering.

In 2004, he was hurt.

I'm not trading him away. He'll have some monster games, and some monster months. Left handed hitters get lots of HR's in that park. Just like with Bay and Crawford a few weeks ago, it only takes 1 hot week, to make the numbers "normal". I'm hoping he goes off soon. I just traded Bay away!! :-o


I was going more for the 13 HR's, .300 avg. in July, not the injury that took him out for part of April.

Not to mention, he did hit 33 HR's from June until the end of the year.

You figure the pitching wasn't great - i mean all the runs they scored and all - and he does squat. he must be playing injured or something.

It's something.. Im just glad I got rid of him way back.. I keep telling you guys.. Expect a 25-28 HR, 90 RBI type season out of him.

The signs of life are few and far between for this guy, though I can't fault people who drafted him super high. I mean there did seem to be a consensus that he was high first round caliber:

he's young
he's in an extreme hitters park
he had a superb year last year

Ending up with Tex is nothing but bad luck.
