a) tejada had a fine season in 2005 and that was basically a down year. i expect him to hit 30+ homers and 115 rbi.
b) i like young, but a big part of his success last year was that he hit as well on the road as he did at home. i see him falling back a little bit.
c) tejada, young, and rollins (and even reyes) are all very very close in my book.
Tejada is 31
umm...young is only 5 months younger than old man tejada.
no longer has a MVP like Giambi or guys hitting 40 - 45 HR's behind him like Palmeiro
palmeiro wasnt doing anything in 2004 when tejada had his 150 rbi season. i guess he had melvin mora as protection. he still has mora and hopefully a recovered b.roberts. he should be fine as long as corey patterson isnt in the top half of the order.
I really really just cannot see why people are waisting a top 8-10 pick on him
well, i agree there, although i havent seen that happen yet. i basically see him go around 14-20.
