Its still kinda up in the air with most people here with who the "real" Teahen
is. Most all of his career he was nothing but an opposite field type hitter who hit for little to no power because of it. He told stories about playing whiffle ball with his brother for years and where they played the only way to hit home runs was to hit it to his opposite field. That naturally translated over into his MLB career. He was that type of hitter all the way up til they sent him down last year and then he finally seemed to realize he needs to pull more pitches on the inside and in the middle of the zone.
I'm a little skeptical on if he has truely turned that corner yet...... its hard for me to take "the" early '06 Teahen
out of my mind when he was no better than Berroa.....
I think i'm leaning toward him being another Randa type though.... .280 15-18hrs 85rbi
