SS is the one spot we don't really need.

2B they don't need either....ever hear of Howie Kendrick, they have him and Brandon Wood in the wings to play these positions. However i've read that Wood would most likely be moved to 3B, they do have Orlando at SS currently who is just getting over a 60+ game on base streak and having a career year.

Truth is, with O Cab, he's really cooled off lately...

In the last month, O Cab's had 7 Runs, 2 HR, 8 RBI, 4 SB, and a .233 BA

Comparatively, Lugo has scored 12 runs more than he has, hit twice as many HR, more SBs, and a .320 BA

O Cab had a great, great start, but has really been slumping. His career year, I would argue, was 2003 when he hit 17 HR, 80 RBI, and batted near .300....he'd do well to match that this year.

Of course, I'm not suggesting that the Angels will play Lugo over their invested SS, just wanted to point out that I think O Cab has been largely overrated as an offensive SS, while Lugo has been underrated...

I love what OCAB has done for us this year, but Tejada is a MAJOR upgrade that I would take. As for Wood, I am pretty sure he would be moved if we got Tejada. I don't see us getting a player of his ilk without giving up Wood.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

I agree. It seems like Kendrick and Wood are the MI of the future. The Halos could use more of Tejada's bat, but not necessarily the position defense. O.C. (Orlando Cabrera) has held up at the plate as a batter who has had a knack of getting on base and is a solid contact hitter, but other than that, he's primarily a defensive SS.

I tend to think Soriano is a better fit from a position perspective, especially with GA better suited to DH'ing and with Soriano playing LF. The Tejada bit is just news to me.

Why the Lugo comparisons? The discussion is Tejada, and the results of the Angels potentially landing him.

Also, I think that Cabrera is on pace with his career year, half way through the season, and just had a 60+ game on base streak, I'm not predicting 74 homeruns, i'm saying that he could be having a career year, of which he potentially could be.

Tejada is still an offensive upgrade no doubt, but a defensive downgrade. The Angels really shouldn't do anything to make them any worse defensively, as they have been horrible this season fielding wise.
