"Until you can accept Reyes for what he was and wasn't and move on these comparisons are silly. "
Huh? They're both shortstops. I'm comparing their batting numbers. How is that silly exactly?
"I'll take REYES over TEJADA any day of the week, and so would any other MLB team.......Any Met fan that thinks Tejada is better, is a joke of a baseball fan."
I can't improve upon this statement.
It all comes down to who helps us win more games. I do think Tejada can help close the gap on the difference in talent level with his baseball intelligence and consistency.
Man on 2nd base tie game late no outs, One player pop up, the next grounds out to the right side allowing the runner to advance to third. both shows up as an out in the box score but one was a complete failure the other was a huge help.
"I'll take REYES over TEJADA any day of the week"
"Reyes caught stealing twice already?! Wow. "
And not to pile on, but one of those came at third base with 2 outs. A big no no.
"And not to pile on, but one of those came at third base with 2 outs. A big no no."
LOL, I saw that.
here is a joke.... its only 8 or 9 games, but here it goes
Tejada - .912 OPS, 7 runs created (8 games) 450k a year
Reyes - .660 OPS, 5 runs created (9 games) 10 million this year, average 16 million next 6.
now that is funny.
"here is a joke.... its only 8 or 9 games, but here it goes"
So 8 games is about $22,000 for Tejada, $800,000 For Reyes
