I was browsing stats this morning at work, and thought I would share some Teahen info that I found, with you. First, lets take a look at the list of pitchers Teahen has hit homers off of in his career:
That is an impressive list. There are some damn good pitchers there. Something else I noticed on that page:
+4 or more 2
20 of his 28 HRs have come with the game tied or the Royals trailing. I have been a Teahen fan since the trade. I have also been a Buck fan. However, looking at these, I am whole heartedly convinced that Teahen is the guy (offensively) that we NEED to build this organization around. I think that he is definately the type of person you want interfacing with Butler, Gordon, Huber (if he ever plays), Costa, and DeJesus. Shealy can bite it, in my opinion.
Teahen is a quality, clutch player. We should keep him at all costs.
