Richard Justice on Tejada

Richard Justice’s column is mostly scold-scold-scold, but the can-you-believe-he-said-this part is near the bottom:

The same is true of Tejada, who has been terrific in the clubhouse and pretty decent on the field. He has been almost everything the Astros hoped he’d be.

Several paragraphs earlier, Justice says the Astros got fleeced on the trade. But never mind about that. Tejada has been not very good on the field at all. He had three big weeks to open the season, but from April 23 onward, he had an OBP of .301 and an SLG of .383, with 9 home runs. In Adam Everett’s last full season, he OBP’d .290 and slugged .352. I’d rather have Everett and Luke Scott right now than Tejada.
