Texeira continues to put in solid work |

I wouldn't exactly say the forward is on fire yet but I'm willing to see Oscar Pareja start him again on Saturday against what is arguably one of the weakest defenses in the league.

I fully expect whatever this club does will still annoy a lot of people that cover this league. Can't make everyone happy but I do think they're smart for asking for input. I'd just say we don't need any more blue teams.
