Miguel Tejada Has Been Bad At The Plate And In The Field

When the San Francisco Giants signed Miguel Tejada, it was thought he could adequately replace Juan Uribe and Edgar Renteria at shortstop.  Unfortunately, Tejada has not played well thus far.

This season, Tejada's batting average has hovered around .200, and he has just 10 RBI in 122 AB's.  The whispers about Tejada showing his age are getting louder as his bat looks slow and he is not making solid contact very often.

Defensively, we are also seeing a decline in Tejada's skills.  He has made five errors thus far, but the real problem is his lack of range.  Especially when he plays the shortstop position, Tejada's lack of range is painfully apparent.

The Giants are built on pitching and rely on solid defense to help them win games.  Poor defense is the area where Tejada's play has been most detrimental to the Giants. 

What should the Giants do about Miguel Tejada?

Read on for seven potential solutions to this problem.
