Gammons on Teixeira

Fire Brand of the American League interviews ESPN.com’s Peter Gammons and asks, “Why would they (Boston) want Teixeira instead of patching other holes?”

Gammons responds, “They look at Teixeira at age 28 and see a star who can produce for an easy eight years, then figure out what to do with everone else. But with the age of Ortiz and Lowell, to put Teixeira in with Youkilis and Pedroia in their primes would give them offensive predictability.”

That’s what I and many others have been saying. If you put Teixeira with Reyes, Wright, and Beltran, you have great offensive production for years to come.  Then you can fill the rest of the lineup with young and inexpensive role players like Ryan Church.
