They both play in hitters parks, and if you look at tejada's second half numbers, his average wasnt that bad. I also think you flip a coin, but I'm leaning to tejada. Then again Nomahhhhh will swipe a few bags for ya. tough call.

Only downside I can think of for Nomar is his dropoff on the road which tagged me the first week of the playoffs. I got killed by this last year and, as they are back on the west coast this year, I decided not to even think about Nomar, even though he IS one of my favorite players to watch. He has always been a bit better @ home but last year the dropoff was very pronounced (.359@ home vs.243 on the road. As I am in a H2H league, I think that it contributed to my demise in the playoffs ( I also had Millar and Mueller as starters who took a vacation that week...I only have Ramirez from the Bosox this year). For some reason, to me, this might go hand in hand w/ him getting up in years and that sort of thing as well, harder to travel or something like that.

Tejada, on the other hand, is young and, despite the 'injury' stuff recently, may be better. He did take a LONG time to get warmed up last year but was much more productive the second 1/2. This is not necessarily a bad thing the way our league seems to work. Everyone gets locked in on the dudes that do well the first half and the value of 'slow starters' seems to really plummet.

To me, even though the numbers appear to favor Nomar, I might have considered Tejada instead, had I not gone w/ Soriano for my second round IF. Actually, Nomar went FOURTH in our league and Tejada went like 29 so I could have gotten Tejada but picked Ramirez/ Soriano/ Sheffield for my first 3. I had decided before the draft though to go for Berroa a bit lower and was able to pull that off too.

I think that it will be a closer call than it might appear, looking at last year's total stats. I think Tejada may very well have a much better year this year and that it could be worth taking a chance on him.

No, they do not both play in hitter's parks.

Camden Yards is a pitcher's park. While it boost homers, it has a major negatove effect on every other offensive stat.

I'd say Miguel...you can probly get him a round later than Nomar. And his average is sure to go up...he had a .265 average at home when he was with the A's.
