Jhonny Peralta the next Tejada?

No, he isn't a young Tejada, he is a guy that had a couple of hot streaks. Those minor league numbers don't compare and Tejada did as much in the majors early with less experience going into it. Tejada also has done more than he was expected in his career, he is a special player.

For those that are saying that he was never the prospect and never had that type of talent, you may be right but once a player gets to the show none of that really matters anymore. You can look at all the scouting reports you want to but they don't mean anything when a player is producing at the pro level. There have been plenty of players that supposedly lacked talent and have come out of nowhere.

On the flip side, the 1st season of a player's career can be pretty misleading. We see it a lot where the league eventually catches up to a player, neutralizes him and returns him to mediocrity. I hope Karabell is correct about his Tejada comparison because I grabbed Peralta off the WW in a Dynasty league but as Bigh0rt likes to say, I think Karabell needs to lay off the crack pipe. It's a bit early to be making those comparisons. :-D


This is the 1st season of mine and bigh0rt's career and we're producing big time. ;-D

I like your 2nd point about how the league can catch up with a guy but it's not like we're looking at Kevin Maas or anything. Peralta has been consistent and he looks, from the games I've seen him (both live and televised) like he has shelf life. (Based on quality at-bats, good eye at the plate, pop, confidence, ability to go the other way.)

Good post except this isn't Peralta's first season. His first stint was two years ago filling in for Vizquel. He was younger then and I'm sure he is better now but I still don't think he is even close to where Tejada when he first broke into the league. Just my opinion.

:-b I do say that a lot. And it's also true that Karabell could use several less hits of the red rock on any given day. Some of the stuff he writes/says baffles me.

I agree, I don't think he's anywhere close to Tejada either. But this year is the closest thing to a first full season and he's only 23. He did have ~250 AB in '03 and 25 in '04 but he just reached the 500 milestone this season so I'm willing to keep an open mind.

I have always been a Perlata fan and have always taken the risk on him. and I will again this year, especially if he ends up putting up tejada like numbers soon. that would probally make my fantasy career
