NEWBERG REPORT PLUS PLUS — SEPTEMBER 22, 2006
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.
