Tejada is back and killing us again!

Recommended Posts

Tejada in LF isn't a better hitter than Peyton or Gibbons? There is nothing to explain, he is night and day better.:eek:

I don't know how you can draw that conclusion never having seen him shag fly balls from the outfield.

This should have been closed when it started. Quick does anyone have the stats on how many different arguements there have been in the Tejada is back and killing us again! thread. Thanks ;)

FYI Tom Davis and Dave Johnson are now jumping all over Tejada on the post game show for not attempting to turn a DP against Crisp on the play Roberts made up the middle in the 7th. They're suggesting that he didn't know how many outs there were. It's not just Hangouters. I'm not saying I agree with them or not, just reporting what was on the radio.

That ball was hit pretty slow and Crisp is pretty fast. I just watched the replay and I don't think he would have turned it, though it didn't look like he was in a position to make the attempt either.

So if he made the attempt and threw wild, he'd be criticized for having thrown it in the first place. Lose/lose.

So what, he played a lot of years and if you watched him (Palmer) like I did you would know not only was he a Gold Glove fielder he was a fanatic about positioning the outfield as well. Where do you get the idea that he doesn't understand baseball enough to comment on a play that Tejada screwed up. Heck, if I can see it, and the same way as Palmer it really wasn't difficult to make the correct comment that Tejada was at fault. Some posters here seem overly sensitive to anything negative posted about Tejada's suspect defense. You better get used to it because he no doubt will continue to screw up routine plays, and Palmer and I will call them as we see them.:eek:

All I'll say about this- and granted- I didn't hear the comments because I was watching the NESN broadcast- but Orioles broadcasters ALWASY seem to be hesitant to criticize anyone. Palmer and Dempsey especially seem to worry about offending any players. I've seen it in th epast with Tejada especially. If Palmer was criticizing him- I suspect he had just gotten fed up with the continued lack of focus on the field.

Dempsey criticizing his lack of attempt at a double play in the 7th is another example. These guys are very political in what they say and how they talk about the players- THEY have to be aco****able for what they say- unlike anyone on this board for the most part- so regardless of right or wrong- if someone who stands with the players on a daily basis is criticizing them, I'd tend to believe there was something to the argument. They aren't just speaking to hear themselves talk...

That was my thought exactly.

I'm not on the "Run Miggy Out Of Town" bandwagon, but this seems silly. Of course he would be criticized for that. There is a third option in addition to 1) Not throwing and 2) Throwing it away. He could 3) Make a good throw like a SS is supposed to do. Whether the runner beats it or not is another issue all together.

I think Palmer is very critical of players especially the pitchers if they are not throwing strikes.

Which he should be. I don't want to hear some homer up there telling me Gibby is great. I want to hear what a real baseball player thinks, especially one who was around when this organization did things the right way. I really like Palmer as a commentator, and I think he's hard but fair. He has no problem praising the players when they perform well, but it's up to them to do it.

Exactly not sure where Palmer isn't critical comes from.

    • Because I the idea of a good, veteran defensive SS anchoring the infield while we--hopefully--feature a very young pitching staff next year getting their feet wet at the Major League level. I am not a fan of Velazquez and am skeptical about Martin. I guess you could sign someone like Hechavarria, but it's going to be hard to find a good defensive shortstop that is not completely useless at the plate for the cost of Iglesias (and we certainly aren't going to pay any more than that for someone for next year, nor should we).  With the young pitching, I want to give them as much as possible to succeed. To me, that means good defense up the middle and at least some offense. I don't want them always expecting to have to be nearly perfect to have a chance of getting their team a win. Having some wiggle room from time-to-time, in my estimation, is helpful. Of course, I don't have data to back that up, but that's my thought.
    • 2021 midseason moves will probably be crazy.   The whiffing in the NYP suggests a conservative initial assignment, but also one where hopefully he's Barry Bonds grown man to the children he'll be playing with.  A good Stowers '21 I think pushes through three levels; two is making par, maybe.
    • From the underrated guitarist department...  
    • I saw Stowers multiple games with Aberdeen in Brooklyn in 2019.  He just glides across the OF in large strides (which makes it all the more impressive that Janvrin pushed Stowers to RF - which gave the Aberdeen pitchers two OFers who could track down everything that possibly could be tracked down).  As I posted at the time, we sat with Mark Dashbach's father and had to cheer for our three Stanford guys with him.   I hope what the Os saw with Stower's swing is fixable because there's a big hit risk here for a second rounder IMO.  This pick has the downside of the OF equivalent of a Cadyn Grenier.  It would be an enormous boost to our OFers at the bottom of the system if Stowers turns into the player the Os envisioned when drafted.
    • This is really good. Sideys from something I was listening. I saw Edgar, right near here in Chambersburg. Very excellent! Don't know what event that was, Ringo introducing.
    • That's a good way to look at it honestly. Stowers is certainly a projection guy with a decent ceiling, but he has a high risk profile on whether he can get there or not.
    • I would guess 162. I doubt we see full stadiums any time soon, but they should be able to play games and draw TV revenue now that testing is already set up and more is known about the disease.
