nope he did not have johnny damon, more like terrance long or mark ellis in front of him, he had damon the year before he won the MVP, close though
Reyes and guerrero, the two most blessed players in the league, not to mention the most fun to watch

I would rather have Miggy then Nomar.

I kno no one will agree with me, but Tejada was 10X better then Nomar in the 2nd half last season and while Nomar always has a better AVG, Miggy's power is above Nomar.

Nomar should be taken over Tejada. Nomar will put up big big numbers in that lineup again, if he can stay healthy like last year. I would also put Tejada and Rentaria on about the same level. I like old Edgar with Pujols and Rolen backing him again

I like Tejada better than Nomar, but Camden Yards is not a good hitting park. It does boost homers, so Tejada should increase his homers, but on almost every other offensive stat Camden Yards is as bad as Oakland. So, don't expect any boost in average (or OBP or SLG, if your league uses those).

If you think that either Tejada or Renteria would be available to you in the 3rd, let someone else grab Nomar in the 2nd and use that pick to get the best available player. Then grab either Renteria or Tejada ( ;-D ) in the 3rd round.


Sage advice, Ramble.

Good call. Then you can grab Kent or B. Boone with that second round pick. ;-D

Took the words right out of my mouth. I think Nomar will perhaps put up better numbers this year, but Tejada's the better value in terms of what he costs you in either auction $ or draft pick.

Tejada.. sum1 already stated my reasons, shorter fences, and better ppl ahead of him and has some good protection behind him in Javy or Raffy or Gibbons, whoever hits cleanup. Matos will hit over .300 this year IMO, but he will bat at the bottom of the order. Mora is supposed to lead-off with hairston in the 2-hole.
