Teix & GA vs Kendry & Rivera

we're almost to the halfway point of the season and it looks like we're hitting out stride. taking this opportunity to examine and compare what we lost over the off-season and what we replaced it with. i want to focus on 1b and lf, big tex and ga.

what we lost:      tex .276  20hr  60 rbi (20.0 mill)     ga .284 4 hr  27 rbi (2.5 mill)  total: .280   24 hr 87 rbi

what we have:   kmo .280  13hr  41 rbi  (600k)    rivers .307 13 hr 43 rbi (3.25 mill)  total: .293 26 hr 84 rbi

granted ga was injured which i think further validates letting him walk (durability issues) and tex is the beneficiary of hitting in a wind tunnel for half his games. also consider the salary implications, tex and ga 22.5 mill compared to kendry, rivera, abreu & fuentes 17.35 mill.
