YearComment
2009 While you might expect there to be a Star Wars action figure named Taggert Bozied, there isn't, just a big minor league veteran a professional hitter type who's already made the hyperspace jump to Oakland's farm system.
2006 Bozied`s comeback from last year`s freak patella tendon rupture ended in July when he hit the DL with lower back and knee problems that the Padres attribute partly to compensating for his previous injury. You want your prospects dealing with these problems like you want R. Kelly to be teaching your daughter`s eighth grade English class. After taking some time off, Bozied is supposed to be back at full strength in the spring. If so, his power gives him a shot at some quality major league playing time.
2005 Was in the midst of a breakout season at Triple-A before a knee injury felled him for the year. That's a shame, as Bozied had hiked his contact rate and power numbers in his second go-round at Portland. Still, he's ready for the bigs, and the Pads hope to use him as a super-utility player with their infield and outfield corner positions spoken for. He'd have been even more intriguing if he'd panned out as a catcher in instructional league the way the Padres originally intended, but the ruptured patella tendon Bozied sustained celebrating a game-winning grand slam in July scuttled those plans. That's not as humiliating as tearing your ACL doing on-field jazzercise after booting a game-winning field goal, but when you're being judged against a Gramatica, nobody wins.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Has Ackley's AFL performance affected your opinion of him at all?
(biteme from Lake Forest, California)
Not really. The AFL is a very bad place to make opinions of guys. Record book is littered with names like Scott Pose, Ken Harvey and Tagg Bozied. Not a good place to make assumptions. When you read tomorrow's Mariners list, you'll see where I stand on him. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-01-12 18:30:00 (link to chat)Besides BP, what is your favorite baseball web site?
(tommybones from brooklyn)
Every morning (there's a halo hangin, blah blah Sugar Ray) I go to BP to seek comments on my articles or those written by others on which I can shed light or respond. After putting deodorant on I go to MLBTradeRumors to find out where Tagg Bozied signed, and then go to Cot's Contracts to check on Bozied's service time. Then I'll make my standard rounds to Fangraphs, Beyond the Box Score, Baseball Think Factory and Inside the Book to check the pulse of the baseball world. (Eric Seidman)
2009-10-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)Can you compare the competition levels of the winter and fall leagues? How is the average ( average meaning BP reading, minor league following) fan to interpret VWL, DSL stats? Or do they mean nothing because we don't know what the clubs advised their players to work on? Thanks
(mrenick from Little rock)
It's a tough question and all of the factors you talk about are involved. On pure talent, Puerto Rico is consistently the lowest, but the rest are hard to gauge, as you do have guys working on specific aspects of their game, or learning a position, and the talent is so crazy varied, especially in the Dominican and Venezuelan leagues, that feature plenty of establish big league guys. Arizona Fall League is a scouting league for me -- numbers rarely mean much there -- when I think of some of the great hitting seasons put up there, I think about Ken Harvey and Tagg Bozied, so what does that tell you? (Kevin Goldstein)
