I dropped him yesterday ... I picked him up largely due to raves in this forum .. I think he'll be a fine player over the long run, but now he's just a slow .250 guy with slightly better than average power.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
I also dropped Koskie (injured at the time) for Teixeira, partly based on the enthusiasm for Tex on this board. Koskie hasn't hit a HR since returning from the DL, but he has hit consistently and stolen 3 bases in the 11 games back (only 1 less than Pierre!)
Teixiera's stats other than BA have been decent recently (6 R, 4 RBI in his last 7 games), but yeah, if I wanted a low-BA third baseman, I would have kept Batista!
