1. 30 HR, 100 RBI Production
In 50 games played this year, Teixeira is producing at a horrific rate. His line includes four homers and 13 RBIs and he connected on his first home run since April 13 in yesterday’s ballgame.
That brutal level of production is destined to keep Tex from knocking in his 100 runs that we have become accustomed to seeing. However, embarking on some relative production will help the offense immensely.
If he starts producing at a rate of that sort for the remainder of the campaign, the lineup will receive a surplus of RBIs that it was missing in his absence.
