Is Tejada overrated?

I wouldnt say he is overrated. Tejada hasnt missed a game in forever, and he puts up a good AVG and good power #'s from a scarce position.

I would say he's not as valuable as he once was, but still a great player and not overrated.

You forgot to list his RBI's ..

I think SB's are overrated personally, especially when you can routinely pull guys like Taveras or Roberts off the wire if you do your homework.

.330/30 hr's/100 runs/100 rbis is nothing to sneeze at from a MI, and Tejada is on pace to have one of his better years.
I would still take him in the top 24.

he's definitely not overrated.

.330 with around 25 HR's and 85 RBI's is great production from any position. Surprisingly, Yahoo has him ranked 50th overall this season, which is insane.

well you are making it seem like corner infielders that hit .300 and post 40 HR's are just growing on trees.

Is SS deeper than it has been in years sure, but until Clint Barmes, Jorge Cantu, Johnny Peralta and Delmon Young show some consistency, I am going to go with Tejada, and take my chances on guys like Konerko and Morneau for my corner

Definitely not. Tejada's in the middle of the best hitting season in his career right now, and he's not showing any signs of slowing down.

I agree with WR. I still rank Tejada the top ss, or at least right there with Jeter and Reyes. He's top 24 easy, especially in a keeper. Guys like Rollins aren't consistent enough. M Young is the overated ss imo.

If you take into account he's off steroids now, his numbers wont be as good as 2004 and prior. But he'll still get you 25 homers and 100 RBI's a year.
