Tejada Wants out of Baltimore; Moronic Yankees Fans Say Trade A-Rod
Friday, December 09, 2005
I'm not saying he doesn't know the best crabs....just that he won't be a Yankee.

All-Star shortstop Miguel Tejada has decided two seasons with the Orioles is enough and publicly expressed his desire to be traded yesterday. Tejada’s declaration has caused a flurry of excitement and controversy amongst fans across the country, and Yankees fans haven’t been left out of the debates. I have read opinions ranging from the silly to the ludicrous on forums today, and I thought I’d share them – and my reactions – with you.

[Disclaimer – pardon the spelling and grammar…I am quoting directly from forums.]

“trade arod for tejada and gibbons”
I’ll brand this one “silly”. There is no way that Tejada would be an improvement over A-Rod, and what would we do with Gibbons? I think the Yankees can do without a mediocre backup first baseman/DH.

“if tejada to sox we are done this year. trade arod to get him on the yanks.”
This has “silly” written all over it. Signing Tejada will not seal Boston’s spot in the playoffs or make a significant impact on the Yankees’ chances at the post season. The Yankees battled him in the AL East for the past two years and seemed to have no trouble with him; I don’t see how his being on the Sox would make any difference. As for the thought of trading A-Rod to get Tejada (who isn’t even a third baseman) is ludicrous. A-Rod has performed better across the board, from BA to OBP to slugging to FP….

“If the Red Sox get Tejada, they will win the division next season. And probably make the WS.”
Ludicrous! Again with the “Tejada Will Be a Savior” talk. I really don’t see how Tejada will make up for the lack of Manny and probably Damon. He is a good player, not Superman.

My personal opinion is that the Orioles will not trade Tejada to the Sox, much less to the Yankees (not that Cashman would deal for him anyway). Why would Baltimore trade him to their division rivals? I’m not saying that it would be a total deal breaker, but it will pose to be a factor. I have a feeling that the Mets will be taking Tejada home with them….pack your bags, Reyes….

    With Jeter and A-Rod already in the fold, what the Yankees obviously need to do is sign Nomar to play CF, trade for Tejada to play 2B, coax Ernie Banks and Cal Ripken out of retirement to play the outfield corners, and exume the lifeless corpse of Honus Wagner, as I'm sure he could be converted from SS to catcher during spring training.
    Indeed, every hard-hitting shortstop in baseball history should immediately be acquired by the Yankees.

    That's not a bad idea Lance. I don't think there is a position on the field that requires a better athlete, so you could teach all the most athletic shortstops in baseball history to play other positions. :)

    Cal Ripken, Robin Yount, Nomar...these are all good examples of guys who were so athletic they learned a new position going into the tail end of their career...

    Of course...I'm being sarcastic about doing it with Tejada. The Orioles don't seem quite dumb enough to ever deal him an AL East team and anyone who thinks of trading A-Rod for Tejada should have their head examined. :)

    Man, I just LOVE Yankees forums. Guaranteed to be chock full of illiterates and/or 12-year-olds.

    And when it comes to baseball decisions, those are the two demographics I trust the most.

    Steinbrenner: Brian! Timmy Smith says we should trade A-Rod for Tejada and Jay Gibbons. Get on that!
    Cashman: George, Timmy is 12.
    Steinbrenner: All the better! These kids today, they're so advanced. They're filled with knowledge from that Internet thing. Make it official: we're trading the best player in baseball for two players who aren't.
