Oh how the Mighty have fallen!! Just a few months ago, Head Dude was mocking the Astros for relying on Mike "Lambo" Lamb for production in the line-up. But what is that I read today when I logged on to trusty mlbtraderumors.com?? The Rangers are going to offer Lambo their starting 1B job!! - that is, if the Red Sox don't get him first!!!
Of course, Lamb isn't a bad offensive option - he had a park adjusted OPS of +.112 last season (OPS was .112 higher than the league average adjusted for Lamb's home park - excluding pitchers). That number is lower than Mark Texeira's +.150, but comparably better than, say, Brad Wilkerson's +.104. So Head Dude, will you be a Lambo fan again?
