    Is Tejada Really That Bad ?

    Let me start by saying I wanted to replace him at the start of the winter, and for that matter I still do. But the kid was not that bad in 2012 at just 22 years old. He looked like poop for half a season before getting hurt last year, However I don't think that's the player he is going to be. I wanted Drew at the start of the winter, and I believed the Mets where to cheap to get him. But after seeing them spend 20 Mil on Colon, Give him and Granderson 1 more year then they wanted, I believe if they really where sold on Drew they could make it happen, maybe they don't think he will help the team as much as we do. Bottom line, I feel as though tejada is getting trashed up and down here. He could easily beat out one of these infield prospects they are thinking of getting in a trade.

    Yup. He is that bad. For a backup he's not that bad. But for a starter, he's terrible

    IDK I could see him putting up CÚsar Izturis type numbers, not great but he has ben a starting player for 10+ years.

    Shortstop is simply the position with room for the most improvement in a cost effective manner.

    Te-jay-dah does not have the talent to be a major league player. He needs to work harder than everyone else to be a solid player, but he has proven to be too lazy to do so.

    Yeah I bet he went to Bartolo Colon fitness camp instead to the one Mets assigned him.

    As of right now, Tejada is a minor leaguer hoping to catch on.

    I have no use for a player who doesn't want to put in the work to improve his game. So I have no use for Ruben Tejada.

    STEAMER and Oliver combine to project Tejada for .255/.312/.328, about league average defense, and 1.5 WAR per 500 PA's.

    As people have said, that's not really good enough to be a starter. But, no, he's not that bad.

    I dont think at his age he has proven to be too lazy. Even his #1 hater on this site states Tejada is unproven.

    He is supposedly gong back to fat camp in January. The jury is still out.

    If he commits himself to playing within his skillset, he can be adequate. And lets not forget everyone raved about his D in the minors.

    People should be at least be rooting gor him to get his head put on straight. He hasn't been a douche in any way that should vilify him. He's has a low-affect personality. He probably needs a mental shot of adrenaline.

    This is a ridiculous thing to say about a 23 year old. He peaked at 21-22? Haha. Cmon.


    To answer the OP's question accurately, NO Tejada is not that bad and his best years are ahead of him. The price people want to pay for a fringe upgrades is way too much.
