I love Young, but Tejada hasn't been de-throned IMO. Tejada is still king, but I really, really, really like Young. He's helped my keeper league team all year long.

Yes, and I envision Tejada 2nd and Peralta 3rd. Then 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th are probably Figgins/Reyes/Furcal/Rollins/Lugo (Who basically put up the same type of numbers and are a different animal but I'd put them in that order). Then I'd probably follow that with Jeter, Lopez, Barmes and Renteria. SS and MI are kind of a unique thing because you are basically deciding whether to go with a Type A (Young/Tejada) or a Type B (Figgins/Reyes). One isn't necessarily better than the other, they just provide different things and one will need to be madeup elsewhere.

Sorry if I turned your Michael Young thread into a SS depth chart. The MI positions are really fun to strategize about though...

He's neck and neck with Tejada but I expect Tejada to be the first SS off the board.

I really agree with AT on this one, and split the SS position into 2 elites groups when I drafted. Who you pick for your SS can really alter the face of your team. An M Young or Tejada means you probably need a speed OF, or at least several 20/20 type players across the board. SS is one of the more versatile draft positions (Not including OF, since it's 3 spots) on one's team.

Tejada is still first IMO but Young is a shoe in for 2nd I think. He is much better than Jeter fantasy wise(just check almost every important stat and Young beats Jeter in it) and contributes pretty heavily in all 4 categories.

i think you still gotta take tejada over mike young. i remember people complaining in the beginning of the season that mike young was a disappointment, he was hitting .300 at the time.

tejada would prolly have finished the season with better numbers than he has right now if the O's didn't have so many injuries and problems after the ASG. BAL's offense was clicking in the beginning of the season and tejada was enjoying an awesome season, but BAL has really fallen apart and even though tejada's numbers are still very good, they suffered a bit.

How exactly if Tejada is 6 months younger than Tejada? :-?
