Tejeda definitely plays better defense

Gordon has game changing speed though

Not sure on the offensive side yet, I think Gordon might have better upside offense, just based off minor league numbers

The only thing Dee has on Tejada is speed. Ruben has a veteran-like presence at the plate, can hit to contact to all fields, and has a very good glove while being extremely smooth in the field. He just needs to get stronger to sart driving the ball more.

Of course, this is all coming form a Mets fan POV :D

Dee Gordon is awful. A bad SS version of Juan Pierre.

Ruben hands down.

Dee Gordon is just fast. Can't do anything else but play fast.

I don't get the feeling Gordon will ever be league average with the bat, even for a SS. He's going to need to put a better defensive showing to become a passable SS.

That wasn't a bad year it was a terrible year and has he ever had a good year? Plus he's 25 next year so he doesn't even have youth going for him.

Minor leagues and I know in 2011 he wasn't that great, but he did hit over .300, granted his OBP% was low, but nobody was *****ing then and he was a top prospect before that, I just think it's to early to give up on him

His minor league numbers are not that impressive. He basically proved he can hit singles to along with elite speed and a less than ideal walk rate. Lots of failed prospects that can attest to the same attributes.

Of course he hits alot of singles, he's 160 LB's Lol, if you expect power you're high

I don't expect power, that's why I don't think he is ever going to be anything special as a major league player (guys who hit only singles and rarely walk face an uphill battle unless they can annually hit close to .300). You keep telling us that he is not horrible because of his track record in the minor leagues. But his track record in the minor leagues suggest nothing that he is a for sure bet to stick as an every day player in the big leagues.

Nobody is a sure bet, I just wanna give him a chance to see if that's the case

He doesn't hit well, he doesn't play defense well, he doesn't walk well, he strikes out too much. The only thing Dee Gordon is good at is being fast, which doesn't help much when you don't reach base

Everyone forgets dee was only a baseball player since junior year in high school, is a terror on the base paths and just needs a full season of playing. He needs to learn how to translate his minors hitting success to the majors and he will be a stud he had a good average in 3-4 real seasons in the minors and only had one injury shortened year in the majors following his 1st year which was a success. 2011 7 walks in 233 abs 2012 20 walks in 330 abs that is improvement, the top of the order other than kemp was a little light lets face it.

he has about the same stats tejada's walks went down last year in more abs and his SO went up, tejada with about 5 sb's a year compared to only a few less so's, compared to about the same amount of walks and 28 more stolen bases in less at bats really???? Now on the d side the 12 errors to dee's 18 is pretty close at a .946 tejada and dee, .974 fielding percentage I would say that is pretty close.
I am kind of a super fan but ill take the base swiping in front of kemp than tejada with no speed all day long?

And tejada seems to have the same minors numbers with less average, less walks and a drastic stolen base difference. Who is failed the guy got hurt last year and has half the major league ab's than tejada?

Oh well his logic. Starting baseball as a junior in high school is probably pretty common and thats still been like 8 years. It matters 0

Dee was giving a huge chance last year by being the Dodgers leadoff hitter and starting SS, and he failed. I remember listening to the post game show on the radio and hearing fan after fan complain about Dee, and how they wanted him out of the lineup. Only a dummy would keep a player with his crummy offense and defense in the lineup the whole year just to see if he pulls a miracle out of his *** by the end of the season.

Bleedinblueball

thats not what everyone was saying the season before when he was heralded as one of our top prospects the kid needs a good hitting coach or some more seasoning. Oh and ps he had a beast winter ball season.

Dee Gordon is an awful fielder. The only thing he is good at is speed (which he is elite at). Everything else he is bad at or awful.
