Since news of A-Rod's injury hit I`ve gotten a few e-mails suggesting the Yankees trade for Mark Teahen. Now Bob Dutton is reporting that they have interest in him. Please, just say no.
At first glance at Teahen's total value's the past three years, its been pretty good. In 2006 and 2007 he was worth about three wins before having a career low in 2008. However, 2007 was not nearly as good as it seems. His bat was barely above replacement level and his defense carried his value. Which is fine, however, that defense came mostly in RF.
He hasn't had a decent offensive year since 2006 and is an awful third baseman. No way he can replace A-Rod.
