Awsome prank! Man, that was as good as anything Ashton Kutcher could come up with. Now if only they keep on making more pranks like those instead of focusing on becoming a better team, The Mets can come back and get revenge for last year, *wink,wink*.
P.S.: I wanted to make a smiley face winking, but I suck at smiley faces.
Aw, don't go by batting average, of all things. Teixeira's career OPS+ is 132 and Kotchman's is 101, and both have similar numbers in 2008 (Tex 139 vs. Kotch 105). Offensively, the Angels come out WAY ahead on this deal.
