Teixeira Is No Pujols

One of these is not like the other. Teixeira is a nice player, but he’s not even close to Pujols. His best season is only better than Pujols’ worst season. In fact, Teixeira is one of the best arguments for why $30 milion a year for Pujols isn’t all that crazy. If Teixeira is worth $22.5 million per year, the difference in ability between the two is easily worth an extra $7.5 million per year.
As for the other suggestion?
That would be one of the worst trades in the history of sport.
