I think the case is more compelling if we can know that it's 99.7% or 99.994% or whatever ("and here are some notable exceptions") than it is by just talking about it as if it's 100%... unless it really is (which I imagine it's not, but I really don't know).... to me, it's the difference between "knowledge" and "dogma" (rhetorically speaking, that is)...
Plus, for no compelling reason, I'm just curious about who the exceptions might have been... and whether those exceptions were so-so nobodies vs. some freaky case of somebody famous...
If there is somebody famous who was an exception, I think that would be grounds for them being even more noteworthy, don't you?

It is also stupid to argue by offensive versus defensive stats that Tejada is worthwhile keeping as a major league shortstop when all you need to do is look at what has been happening on the field.
Again, unless you keep accumulated stats as to how many specific/individual games Tejada has won by his bat verus blown by his glove ( not talking about game winning hits versus errors but actual games lost like the 1-1 affair the other night where his blunder led to 4 more runs being scored versus his meaningless dinger) but actual direct cause and effect to individual games and I believe you will find Tejada is an albatross to this team as a shortstop.
