    So I took a look at the numbers, and while Teixeira may be having a subpar season so far, there is still a chance he can turn it around. If Tex goes on to hit at the exact pace he did last year from June 19, 2009 – the end of the 2009 season, his numbers don’t look as bad :

    94 Games from 2009 + 67 games from 2010
    729 PA
    628 AB
    168 H
    38 2B
    3 3B
    29 HR
    105 RBI
    86 BB
    .268/.348/.476/.824

    Sure, it’d be an off year for him. But it wouldn’t be the Rico Bergman-like numbers he’s putting up now. You should also keep in mind that this excludes Tex’s hottest streak of the season, which was from May 2, 2009 – May 31, 2009. Since we know he is capable of an outstanding month like that, lets take a look at Tex’s current numbers and add in that hot streak :

    26 Games from 2009 + 67 Games from 2010
    425 PA
    357 AB
    96H
    22 2B
    0 3B
    23 HR
    72 RBI
    49 BB
    .269/.341/.524/.865

    If Tex goes on a tear like that for the next 26 games, he’d put himself in a pretty good position to finish the final two plus months of the year with his usual numbers. Hopefully this isn’t “just a different year”, and Tex can live up up to his annual numbers.

      Let yesterdays game be the first of the very streak I talk about.

      At the least his slugging % is finally on the cusp of .400.
