Shea Hillenbrand Was Kinda' Bad

So, you all remember that Miguel Tejada trade? Remember when Miggy got off to that scorching start in Houston and some people were saying he should have been playing shortstop for the O's instead of Luis Hernandez? Well - funny thing - Miguel Tejada has walked 21 times this year, and he has grounded into 21 double plays. Going back the last few years, I only found one non-catcher for whom that was the case; Shea Hillenbrand. Oh, and Tejada is also hitting .283/.317/.421 with 12 HR, while Luke Scott is at .273/.357/.519 with 21 HR. And Houston threw in four more players and around 12 million bucks. Thanks Ed Wade!
