I'm an idiot. I meant Castilla. Damn vowels.
I'm about as torn as this thread.
On the one hand Vinny is old and wasn't decent in the last year of his first Colorado stint. All signs pointed to a downward trend in his career and when he left it became apparent how much he benefited from hitting in Coors.
On the other hand, it is possible for older hitters to find their strokes again. It happens, but when it does, we don't want to believe it. No one wanted to believe Javy was for real last year. Confidence is important even in veterans and Vinny certainly has to feel confident hitting in Coors. While he's obviously going to hit better at home, that confidence will carry over while he's on the road.
Finally, Vinny hits cleanup for the Rockies. How could he not drive in 100?
As far as Teix. goes. It's just too early to tell about this season, he's only played 10 games. He is a fine looking young player, he hits in a very good offense and has his own hitters park. 26 HR's in his rookie year is quite an accomplishment, he should get better this year. But I'm not sure we should expect him to match Vinny in OBP.
