Braves Collection: Mark Texeira

2008 Upper Deck #48

I don’t like Mark Texeira. Does that make me a bad person? I’m not saying he’s a bad player. I’m not an idiot. His numbers speak for themselves. He was especially great for the Angels after we unloaded him last year. Hell, he was pretty damn good for us for the last two months of the 2007 season. In 2008, we saw just how bad he could be early in the season and frankly, I think he helped sink our chances. (That’s just sour grapes talking I’m sure. There were a lot of things that sunk the 2008 Atlanta Braves.) 

No way was he was worth the 364 day rental.
