Ranking Nomar, Jeter, and Tegada

Postby pswitzer » Mon Feb 24, 2003 8:02 am

How do you rank these guys?

I lean toward a Jeter, Nomar, Tegada ranking because:
a- I think Jeter's 2002 season was an aberration.
b- Nomar is injury prone.
c- Tegada will most likely have a letdown and his contract status could affect him.

What do you guys think? Thanks. Paul

No offense to Nomar, but Tejada is like 26? And Jeter's SB's help his overall stats.

Tejada clearly has the power edge over Nomar and Nomar has the power edge over Jeter. Jeter does have speed on the other 2 but they both go for 100+ rbi's and Jeter does not.

If you go off last years stats, then it would be Tejada, Nomar, Jeter. I'm sorry, i just can't see these guys putting up the same numbers.

1 Nomar - he actually struggled last year. He could have easily hit 30 homers. I think his avg is what separates him from Tejada this year. I am thinking .350 with 30 hr and 110 rbis.

2 Jeter - I think Jeter might bounce back with a good average this year. My guess would be .320 20 hr 80 rbi 25 steals

3 Tejada - He had a career year and would not be surprised to see him drop his avg to .280. The power will still be there. 30 hrs and 100 rbi's.

1) Nomar. Average AND power. EXPECT at least .330 30 100 120 from him.

2) Tejada. Power. I expect .275 35 100 120

3) Jeter. Average and speed. I expect .300 15 110 85 plus maybe 20 steals...

well said young man, i like your points. id agree and say nomar over tejada purely for their average difference as nomar will hit at least 330 if hes full strength this year and tejada probably 290 or less. then jeter, hes just too far behind in power.

I'd put them as
Nomar,- Good for 140 games, and you can forgive his 20 games off a season for his stats.
Tejada,- If he can repeat his avg from last year, he'll keep on moving up past Nomar. Clearly the HR winner. And it's not spelled Tegada. I have trouble taking someone who doesn't know last years MVP's name opinion seriously.
Jeter. Is there any player who is more bark and less bite than Derek Jeter? He'll steal more bases, but doesn't have much power. He has puny girl arms. And his offseason squabbles with George make me cringe. Hope they affect his head.

i would go nomar, tejada, jeter.

would take tejada over jeter just because its a lot harder to find power out of a SS than steals. power numbers usually stay pretty consistant and steals drop quick the older the player gets (in most cases)

Whew I'm glad some people finally agree.

Nomah, Tejada, Jeter.

People are overhyping Tejada after he went on his wild ride late last season. Many have also forgotten or never known how dominant Nomah was before he got hurt, and he's coming back to his level. Jeter is pretty good, but in general he's all yap and no smack. Put any of Nomah, Tejada, or ARod in the pinstripes the past few years and they'd have the same rings that Jeter has.

1. Tejada
2. Jeter
3. Nomar

you gotta go with tejada first because he is just solid in four categories. Jeter is two because he has those nice swipes to go along with the average and runs, and he is a rare player that will get you some steals, but not kill you in HRs and RBIs. Nomar is solid, but third because he is a poor man's tejada.
