    It's wasted bandwidth, but I appreciate the enthusiasm.

    I think the O's fans are going to start to CHEER Tex for going to NY.

    I don't think I've ever seen a player make easy plays look difficult more than Teixeira.

    Was a line drive right to him, not scorched. He catches it, then does a little slide, then spins.

    Just so I understand, you're complaining about his defense?

    Complaining? No. His defense is fine. I just find it humorous that he makes routine plays look difficult.

    As long as he makes the routine plays who cares, particularly if he also is making plenty of non-routine plays.

    Nope. I retracted that (prior to his hitting streak).

    Nor do I understand what the two have to do with one another.

    They originated from the same fertile mind!

    anyway...I will go out on a limb here and say I like Tex's defense. If he wants to spin and gyrate, fine.

    He just said he wasn't complaining about Tex's defense.

    We can make fun of Pedroia for diving at balls hit 2 feet to his right but we can't make fun of Teixeira's seemingly unnecessary pirouettes?

    Personally, I have no complaints whatsoever about his defense.

    This whole board was screaming to sign him and anybody that now blames the FO for doing so are most likely hypocrites.

    Re: 2012 Mark Teixeira Performance Thread

    Everyone wanted Tex...anyone who says they didnt is just lying. I think we all thought we'd get at least 5-6 elite years out of this contract. It was the perfect signing because he was in his prime years.

    I think all of us are shocked at how the offensive production has dropped off since 2009. He's still only 32...its not like he's 35-36. If he was, the dropoff would make sense. But he's not that age yet, and the dropoff makes no sense.

    I don't think it's age related, I just think he got into some bad habits that he can't shake and with the increase in other teams utilizing the shift it's affecting him mentally now.

    He could change this by not consistently trying to pull everything on the outside corner. It's his own fault for being so stubborn.
