    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Where's Teixeira tonight? : Hey pins, I think that Tex needs to get back to driving the ball up the middle, his BA IMHO suffers from his being to pull centric at Yankee stadium (see Giambi), sometimes hitter get enamored with trying to hit the ball out of the yard and it does have an effect on thier abiltiy to handle the ball on the outer half, a pitch he routinely drove into the left-center gap hitting lefthanded. That said, I agree with the above, he's still among the best all around 1st basemans in the league but I do think in his quest to hit 40 homers he's sacrificing 25 or 30 points in BA

    Teixeira said driving in runs and getting on base are most important to him. And in that respect, Teixeira is faring fine.



    as always solid stuff BT

    IMO  it's much like the always fun

    ''should the hitter give in to the shift ''  debates

    sure I hope  he gets back to being more of a #3 than a #4

    but with all the smoke and mirrors we been using on the mound

    I can't call it a concern

    it might be time to switch him and arod











      Average is now a real Tex-factor

    "Mark Teixeira isn't sure why his batting average has plummeted to such a miserable level.

    "The weird thing is, someone told me I'm putting the ball in play more than I have in my career," he said last night. "Sometimes they just don't fall."

    In the Yankees' 5-1 loss to the Rays last night, Teixeira went 0-for-2 with two walks, dropping his average to .241, his lowest since mid-April. He is perilously close to the .230s, not what's expected from a $180 million player who came into the season with a career average of .286.

    From his first season in the major leagues in 2003 through his first season in pinstripes in 2009 (a year in which he hit .292), his career average was .290. But last season, Teixeira plummeted to .256. and his current .241 mark is his lowest since he was at .226 on April 19. Since June 1, he's batting .215 (26-for-121).

    Teixeira said driving in runs and getting on base are most important to him. And in that respect, Teixeira is faring fine.

    He entered yesterday ranked ninth in the AL in slugging percentage, and after last night that mark stood at a strong .520, thanks primarily to his 25 homers (he's on pace for 47). And he has 65 RBIs, on pace for 122, which would tie for the second most in his career. His on-base percentage is a respectable .348, and he has drawn 46 walks, second to Nick Swisher on the team."

     






    hey he wasn't on the braves when Glavine and  Maddux

    shot that ''Chicks Dig the Long Ball''  video was he ;-)

    Its not that...Zak, you should know that I don't bash the Yanks...I hate them...but I don't bash them.  It just seems to me that Tex is the least of the Yanks worries and whether or not he made the All Star team.  As I said, Pedey is an All Star to me and the heart of the Sox.  Just because he was not there changes none of that.

    That was me...babe can't take it.  Plus he got banned again.  He must just battle everyone because I have had some knockdown drag outs and have not been banned yet.  I'm sure it will happen at some point, though!  What usually gets him banned?

    This excerpt had a slight spin, but the next paragraph tempered the current OBP some. However, why would you take this excerpt, and attempt to use it out of context by attaching it to a season sequence of his #s featuring ROAD OPS and OBP, when the article title WAS about a downward trend for him? Some may accuse you of cherry picking, which falls under the category of ........ well spin.

    Reminds me of some of the times I have read fans of an unnamed team take shots at Yaz for those "off" years, like the '69 and '71 seasons where he hit .255 and .254, as markers of how he really wasn't all that great of a player. 

    I'm not displeased, as a rival, that Tex is off on his BA, but that doesn't mean he's not dangerous each time at bat.  It would be silly to think otherwise.

    This is kind of the reverse of Dave Kingman ... who often had firepower but low BAs and occasionally had decent BAs to go with his power.

    Tex couldn't make it last night, he was busy practicing his "O-Face" in the mirror & marvelling at the fact that he can jam quarters in those gaping nostrils sideways.

    spin as in HR & RBI mean squat

    IMO that's really what matters most

    This perennial sad sack says Jeter and A Rod get votes because it's not based on talent. Tex doesn't get enough votes because it's based on talent.

    2011          AB         RBI      SLG
    Teix           324       65        .519
    Lind           260       52       .515
    Morse         271      49       .535
    Howard      339       72       .475

    I suspect you don't really think the RBI is an important stat but it suits your role as defender of all things Yankee, to use it.  On a rate basis the RBI has more relevance but as we know clutch hitting has been shown not to be a repeatable skill.   Put Lind or Morse in Philly or the Bronx and play them every inning and how many more RBI would they have?
