Can Adam Jones be counted on in the three-hole?

In what is likely the defining baseball book of our generation, Billy Beane not so affectionately referred to Miguel Tejada as “Mr. Swing at Everything.” Not exactly known for his plate discipline or willingness to take a walk, Tejada never quite fit the mold of the patient hitters who helped shape the Oakland offense of the early 2000’s. Tejada drew just 287 walks during his...

Chris Parmelee’s hot start should look familiar to Orioles fans

If you are a Baltimore Orioles fan like me, perhaps you have wiped the 2004 season totally from your memory bank. That 2004 season saw the Birds finish an incredible 23.0 games out of first place, even though the team had just gone on an offseason spending spree that landed Miguel Tejada, Rafael Palmeiro, and Javy Lopez. Those three, however, were not the biggest stories of a season...

Teams are taking exception to the...

A return to the defense first shortstop?

The position of shortstop was always dominated by great defenders who cared little about their offensive prowess from the beginning of baseball until the surge in power all around baseball in the mid-1990’s. This is exemplified by players like Ozzie Smith, who managed to play a 19 year, Hall of Fame career despite a .262/.337/.328 career batting line and 28 total home runs. In...

Second base has been a revolving door lately for the Kansas City Royals. So much so that Miguel Tejada started 22 games at second base for the Royals in 2013. To put that in perspective, Tejada had four career starts at second base in 14 previous seasons and over 1900 games. But Kansas City was desperate for someone to fill in at the key infield spot.

These aren't your Athletics of a decade ago, when their division champion teams were loaded with stars like Jason Giambi, Miguel Tejada, Eric Chavez, Barry Zito, Mark Mulder, and Tim Hudson. Only one member of the 2013 A's was as much as a four win player, and only three others joined him in being a three win guy.
