Not a bust???!!!!

This guy has been the very definition of a bust.


He clearly details exactly what a bust should act like. Whomever drafted him cannot possibly be having that great of a season because he was a first round pick.



I drafted him and i'm having a fine season. I'm in 7th righ tnow in a league where teams 3-15 are within 8 games of each other. Fantasy baseball is about managing your team when it doesn't perform. If your team is centered around one guy then its your own fault for having a poor season...

I'm tied for 1st in a 12 team league and I took Tex at #4.

I wish he would get hurt so I would have a reason to bench him.

He is a Ga.Tech Nerd!!!

Part time 1st baseman Adam LaRoche just hit his 13th home run tonight. That is 5 more than Tex.

Then drop Teix and pick-up LaRoche. Should work out well for you...

After The Break:

2003- 12 HR
2004- 20 HR
2005- 18 HR

I know it's been a long ride Tex owners, and I'm feeling the pain in 1 league with you, but don't think about dropping him. He was a top 5 pick for a reason, and I think just 1 more month of patience could pay off big time.

I wish Yahoo would let me.

Tex. has shown his no signs of hitting any home runs in the 2nd half.

Just face it. Tex. is the biggest bust of 2006.

What that sound? Did Lyle Overbay just it another home run?
Glad I have Overbay sitting on my bench, while Tex. grounds out to the 1st basman.

Teix and Young are steroid buddies, seriously 13 HR between them. 49 Players have hit more HR this year than Tex and Young combined. Im surprised they arent mentioned more in regards to juicing. Granted Young was never much of a power hitter but hes on pace for like 10 HR.
