Anyone have any interest in Doumit and/or Capps?

I could package the two of them for a decent bat...

Teixeira who?




26 runs

12th round draft pick.


If anyone has a good swinging-for-the-fences picture of him in a Rangers uni let me know.

Best I could find.

He did have a good quarter of the season.  I'm not completely sold yet, but so far so good.

He's on pace for about 185 RBI. :D



I'm probably jinxing the hell out of him... ::)

I will say this about Cliff Lee:

Lucky.  Start.

Cliff Lee is the beneficiary of good luck to this point.  Sometime in June he'll revert to his 4.50 ERA 1.40 WHIP self, and the entire house of cards will come crashing down.  His victims to this point this season have been: OAK (sucks) , OAK (sucks) , MIN (average) , KAN (sucks) , SEA (sucks) , NYY (banged up severely), and TOR (banged up severely).

This is not a mystery.  Match him up against Boston or Arizona and show me those numbers, then I might start to believe.

He's gonna have a wretched 2nd half, so just be ready to bail.  You heard it here first.  Do not drink the Cliff Lee Kool-Aid.

Now for a REAL undrafted stud:




.303  HR 11 RBI 33 Runs 34 SB 4

****DRESSELIAN NEWS FLASH****  2-4 today: HR, 3 RBI, 2 R.  Tack that on.

My gut tells me that you're right about all of that, but I'm not going to sit him until it happens.  His numbers have been incredible so far.

On the other hand, I just checked the Cleveland Indians' schedule for the rest of this year.  They face like 1 good opponent, and that's in September when they have 4 games with Boston.  But I think some of the average teams will rough Lee up anyhow, just maybe not as bad as I originally thought.  A team like the Rays might kill him.

Now say something nice about Nate McLouth.

He's this year's Prince Fielder?

And by that I mainly mean, a guy who started hot, was available, that I passed on, who will end up having a monstrous year, and I'll be kicking myself until the end.

Well you didn't have to wait very long for verification on that one!  :o

Probably nothing, but still.

I've been pretty happy with my 21st rounder too.




The 20th round was good to me as well.
