Mark Teixeira has 108 fewer at-bats since the All-Star Break than he had before it.

That’s 108 fewer.

He has four more RBI post-Break than pre-Break.

Three more walks.

He has twice as many home runs post-Break (20 vs. 9).

Remember the few of us who suggested those first-half doubles would become second-half bombs? Teixeira had 31 doubles before the Break, a dozen since.

Tex is a .269/.380/.563 hitter in the second half.

He’s going to have a huge 2007.


P.S. Chris Young is pretty good.
