Thanks for checking out my post, first of all, hell of a trade you pulled for A-rod without giving up the farm. HR and RBI's will gain you massive points, two weak areas that you have right now. Smoltz is solid and your staff is a little shaky without him, but anytime you can get Arod, you had to do it. WIth that said, Tex is still puzzling to me as to why he isn't putting up first round numbers, if he even produces at 80% of what he's capable of, your offensive numbers will definitely be much better than they are now. As to whether that's enough for you to overtake first, I am not sure. I don't think with your current lineup, youcan make up that much ground so you need to make some moves. If you can get rid some of your bench players and work a two for one for an upgrade, I would definitely do that.
