GMs still don't get it about Tejada, and the GIDPs

The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo's new column is up, and in his closing randomness has a note about Tejada's continued unemployment:

Someone is going to get a .300 hitter who can drive the ball into the gaps, play every day, and be a good clubhouse presence. And they’re going to get him for a year or two at little money. One NL general manager who considered Tejada said, "He’s been in the right ballpark [Houston] to hit the doubles, but he’s also a double-play machine. Not sure, also, whether the conversion to third base will be as seamless as people think. Having said that, someone is going to get a pretty good player."

What's wrong with you people! Haven't you read this post?!
