As far as the Kotchman/Teixeira trade is concerned, I think most fans were sad to see Casey go, but were also ready to welcome Teixeira with open arms. The guy(Tex) is a stud with the stick, has a great glove and has already showed more plate discipline than our entire team combined(he already has 7 walks!!!). Like HalosHeaven patron Vlad IS my man pointed out in a post from last week, the guy is an on base machine. That post couldn't of been more aptly titled. As far as his power, he had a great grand slam on Sunday, and was 4 feet from another homer on Monday. On the field, he's been digging out balls, made one awesome play(Monday), and aside from that error the same night, he's been as good as advertised. I guess what i'm getting at, is I like him on this team. He may be a rental, but it was a move that will pay off, I believe.
So what's the point? Well, on June 19 I made a fan post that.....well, i'll just let you guys read it to refresh your memories. Be prepared....this made me feel kind of dumb as it may others:
Is it too early to say I, or anybody else on that thread, was wrong? I'm going to go ahead and say that I look pretty silly. BUT, I won't apologize for taking it to Ken Rosenthal. For the record, everything he writes, or says, I still just here "Durrr...durrr..dur...dur."
