Tejada to the Angels??

I think Tejada is underrated defensively. He makes the plays he should make, but nothing spectacular. So he could fit there. Tejada should move to 3B IMO. Cabrera is great defensively and has greater range. Cabrera has more than filled expectations so I wouldn't expect the Angels to get Tejada to play SS.


If makes more sense for me, for them to trade Kendrick and other for soriano, who could play either 2B or OF. Kennedy is no starter IMO, and Kendrick wouldn't be on the team if they traded for Soriano.

Soriano is a butcher at 2B. No team should ever start him there. Fool me once...

I've watched alot of games because I have Figgins, Ocab, KROD and Escobar on my fantasy team. I don't think Scoccia (how the heck to you spell his name?) would bring on Soriano to play 2B.

Sorry Philliebuster,

The comparison was merely from a fantasy perspective. It's mostly the result of my vain attempts to trade the owner in my league Lugo or Reyes, when he insists that O Cab has been a "monster"

Does O Cab have another hot streak in him? Probably, but I don't see much more than a 7 HR, 40 RBI, 10 SB, .280 BA performance out of him in the second half - very mediocre for the SS position

As far as real baseball goes, O Cab is much more valuable as a steady glove and reliable table setter. But it's clear that the Angels need a huge bat like Tejada more than they need the slight upgrade on defense.

I see and understand, but I think what is most important for them is to not downgrade defensively, they are horrible, and have lost alot of games because of their bad defense.

You have GOT to be kidding me. Living near Balt...over the years, I've watched plenty of Tejada at SS. Let's just say he should thank Brian Roberts for saving his lazy defensive butt day in and day out.
