Miguel Tejada

Postby Red Stripe » Mon Nov 28, 2005 8:24 pm

So what is everybody thinking about him for next year?

From what I have seen online, he's getting really underrated and ranked pretty low just because of a not so hot 2nd half and that stupid B-12 thing with Palmeiro. On average, sites are putting him around a mid to late 2nd round pick in normal 12 team leagues. There is no way he should be that far down. He's still the top ranked SS in my eyes(Although SS has gotten a little deeper this year) even if he isn't in a league of his own at that position anymore with Michael Young up at his playing level now.

I mean for crying out loud, Brandon Funston(I know he isn't the best guy to get advice from but still...) has him ranked at 27th on that big board thing behind Jose Reyes a spot and behind Michael Young by 15 spots? What is up with that? There is no way Reyes is going to be more valuable than Tejada this year.

I really think he could be a great value pick this year with lots of people underrating him and especially big sites on the internet underrating him.

As they say, "The Lord is good." I have no reason to believe he won't bounce back. The O's just had a tumultuous season last year, and it took its toll on the guy. Everyone needs a day off sooner or later.

Except Baltimore god Cal Ripken, I guess. If anyone here ever goes to an O's game, you will see more Cal Ripken video clips than the number of games he played in consecutively.

Red Stripe, I totally see what you're saying. I'm not underrating Tejada this year because like you, I think he's going to have just as good of a season as his previous years. I'm high on him this year and ifpeople can get him for a bargain price, by all means.

Its not so much that people don't believe he will have a good season. Its just the rest of the SS class has gotten much better. SS runs 14 or so deep and while Tejada is still likely the best option of them all, the dropoff isn't nearly what it was last season.

This is exactly what I was going to say. Tejada was soo valuable last season because SS was not great at all. This year you can afford to wait and still land a nice option. Is Michael Young now the top ranking SS?

I would still take Tejada over him. But I would also take Rollins and possibly Jeter over Young. Young should still hit for a very good average, but I don't expect another .330+ season.

I couldn't agree more with the original post...I too have noticed that Miggy is gettin no love from the so-called "experts"...

I would definetly rank Miggy #1, followed by a about 4-5 guys who could all be interchangable. SS is deeper than it used to be, but Miggy still da man!

What about Furcal? Regardless of where he ends up, he'll probably lead off and steal bases. I'd at least put him in the same discussion as Rollins.

I think Tejada is still the top SS but unless I can get him after the top 10 picks, I won't draft him.

I also like Rollins as the second best SS. His age makes me think he will be great this year. Plus he finished very strong.
