Ripken, Robinson think Tejada will be just fine at third

0 Comments

No one has seen him take grounders there yet, but the Orioles’ two Hall of Fame third basemen think that Miguel Tejada will be just fine moving from shortstop to third base.  This is a fun quote though:

“I think there is a physical side and then there is a mental side,”
Ripken said. “But Miggi’s got great hands. He knows how to catch a
ball, and he’s got a great, strong, accurate arm.”

Am I reading too much into a “but” on a slow news day, or did Ripken just imply that Tejada is stupid?
