While watching these past two games against Texas I noticed that Mark Teixeira's numbers weren't very impressive. Sure they are good but not up to par with the numbers he has put up the last few years. Is this just an early season slump? Has he slimmed down or gotten smaller when compared to last year? He doesn't look that big currently but I really don't remember how built up he was before. It's very apparent that IRod got shrinky over the years but I just don't remember how Teixeira looked before.

He looks smaller and swings smaller also.

Blalock is about in line with his career averages really. He's on pace for 23 HR and 116 RBI. Last year he hit 25 and drove in 92.

Mark Teixeira (1B) Tex (http://www.rototimes.com/index.php?sport=bsball&type=profile&name=3911) has 10 fewer homers and 15 fewer RBI than he did a year ago today. He's been working with hitting instructor Rudy Jaramillo to fix a mechanical flaw in order to create a little more lift when Teixeira hits the ball, according to the Dallas Morning News. "The balls that should be homers are going for doubles," said Teixeira, who has four more doubles than he did a year ago.

Tex looks the same to me as he has always looked.

Right now his swing is long, hes swinging at bad pitches and he always heats up along with the weather.

That sounds to me like he's playing through a shoulder injury. Morgan Ensberg had the same thing in 2004, healed over the off-season, and had a monster 2005.

Seattle third baseman.

That would be Adrian Beltre,who had a monster 2004 campaign,
but has had trouble putting up similar numbers since.A lucrative multi year
deal will do that to some guys.

Do women know about that?
