A healthy Vlad will be fun to watch!
Since he came up with Montreal, Vlad Guerrero has been one of the best hitters in baseball:
.321 lifetime average; 315 Hrs & 1,037 Rbi's
Of course, I agee with Evan Grant:
"His right knee had been deteriorating for several years, before undergoing surgery after the 2008 season.
As the knee issue grew worse, Guerrero's statistics declined.
After hitting .329 with a .552 slugging percentage in 2005, he dropped in both categories in each of the next three years."
What Vlad did the Rangers sign?
Let's pray that he is the Ranger killer of years past: 396 average against Texas with 24 home runs and 68 RBI!
Let's hope that Guerrero can give the Rangers about 450 healthy at-bats.
Let's ask for about 25 Hrs and 80 Rbi's.....the rest is gravy because this is a lineup that already includes Michael Young, Josh Hamilton and Ian Kinsler!
P.S. I like this video about the roster but.....
keep an eye on Colby Lewis making the starting rotation;
Toby Hall should be the veteran # 2 catcher and Teargarden needs to spend a little time down in AAA;
David Murphy will get a lot of bats as the 4th outfielder;
Chris Davis should hit 5th and Kinsler should hit 6th; and,
4 guys in this opening day roster came on the Texeira deal: Saltalamacchia, Andrus, Feliz and Harrison. Good trade?
Here is the video:
