I think they made the bigger mistake by not finding a way to keep both of them. Either one would struggle without the other in the lineup. I don't think Tejada would be doing all that much better than Chavez right now in the Oakland lineup.

The bottom line is that they have this pitching first mentality, which is fine when you can field a Major League offense. But when your offense is comparable to a AAA squad, it's going to come back and haunt you.

Chavez EqA over the last 4 seasons has been higher than Tejeda's.
Chavez UZR & TT(true talent) have been much higher over that same 4 year course as well.

Both these metrics yield offensively and defensively Chavez is the better player. dont let 5 weeks cloud your memories.

Yes, I'm sure the Orioles would readily trade Tejada back to the A's for Chavez straight up for his vastly superior offensive/defensive talent, durability & leadership qualities.

I take it that position scarcity is not factored into these "so-called" equations. The depth at 3B is tremendous -- almost dime a dozen. At SS you can count the stellar players on one hand with fingers to spare. The drop-off in quality thereafter is very sharp.

A Chavez for Tejada trade would be a no-brainer -- and not just in Fantasy BB.
