tejada driving in 150 runs is crazy? he did it once and hes never going to do it again.. you'd have to be out of your mind if you think hes going to get more then 130.. hed be lucky to get 120 this year.. thats like saying reyes will score 160-170 runs this year.. the likleyhood of that is a lot greater then tejadas 150 rbis..
jose reyes is the next generation of short stops, not to mention the best lead off hitter in the game.. tejadas a great player but you have to give the nod to reyes, so young and so much talent..
and all of you homers that put jeter need to jump off the yanks banwagon.
I know he is younger, but this superteam is meant to be built for one season alone...I think Tejada could easily drive in 150 runs with the team I built.
