Re: Tejada Left Field?
Signing a guy to play another position is not a very good idea. I don't understand why we can't sign a mediocore left fielder and an average SS with the trade tools we have. If pitching wins, then a 200 inning pitcher should be able to get a 250. BA and a 150 game LF in a heartbeat. I would rather see a team that is average in most spots than good in a few and horrid in another. I also think having 8 possible OF is absurd. How in the world do you give 8 different guys a fair shake at being the LF on Opening Day. Dusty Baker can't even draw a lineup card, he might as well get a lottery ball machine and try to find a LF. Giving him an opportunity to play boggle with these guys is a recipe for disaster. It's hard to be consistent in baseball, but it has to start with the manager before these guys have a chance.
WE DON'T, WE DON'T, WE DON'T MESS AROUND HEY!
