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.


Some very bad luck I would say. Everything pointed to him having another great year.

Man oh man, I liked Tex this year, and I don't know why I didn't manage to end up with him in any of my 5 leagues, but I sure am happy about it now. 1 - 6 1 rbi 1 k against the royals, when the rangers score 12 runs? wow, this is starting get ugly.

It ain't like the guy isn't hitting!! His avg is still in the .290's. It just seems like everytime he gets a hit, no one is on base, or they can't come around and score. I don't think he's hurt. If he was, I would hope Showalter and the rest of the staff would be able to tell.

I'm not worried about the first 9 weeks, they are GONE. I'm worried about the next 16!! If he can put up numbers the rest of the year like he has the past 2 years, then I'll be happy. ;-D

Its the LOB stat that I am worried about. I think they should move him in the order personally. Maybe have him hit 5th or something. It worked for soriano hitting 1st in the order and Sexson hitting 5th has 3 homers now at that spot.

Actually, I traded Bay right before he went off, so I could trade Teix if you ask nicely and then he'll heat up fast.

ROFL...can you possibly trade Pujols to speed up his recovery as well? :D

It's triply frustrating because the two guys who hit ahead of him are .300+ hitters. I've been trying to watch as many Texas games as possible, because Teixiera is killing me and Young or Matthews are ALWAYS on base.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

not only are they on base a good percentage of the time, but both matthews jr and young have relatively high slugging percentages for the 1/2 hole, thus they are routinely in scoring position for tex. sooner or later he'll figure it out, he's too good of a hitter to be like this for that much longer.

Teixiera.. Any concerns?

For those who have followed my post from the begining, it's time to get real on Teix.. OWNERS.. You are on the 25-28HR, 90 RBI train for Teix.. I traded in late April for Howard, and it's paying off big time.. I know his stock is low, but GET OFF the Teix 1st round train.. Put it this way, end of June 05, he was at 22 HR's and 62 RBI's.. He is not even 1/2 of that right now.. I think we may find out he's injured.. He looks lost at the plate.. Keep him if you want, but Id get rid of him now. Before you know it, it'll be August 1st and he will be sitting at a dandy 19 HR's and 70 RBI type season..
