I was looking at the wrong column on here
...........the headings were in text that wasn't readable and I must have shifted my reading a column left. So that turned out to be HR's, not BA
But my point is, his situation is getting better. Oakland is a hitter's nightmare considering their stadium and their lineup. He should also get more SB's with a coach who likes to run more. He's been successful 80% of the time over the past 3 years. That's much better than Hairston's 66% and they let him run all the time causing people to predict 50 for him. I can see Tejada getting 30 HR and 15-20 SB's this year. And if not for the month of April, Tejada would have hit .303 last year. Moving to a better park and lineup, I'd look for him to crack 300.
Like I said, it's a close call between him and Nomar, but Tejada's durability and the fact that you can get him a round later make him the better choice.
