I hate the Tejada trade. The more I think about it, the angrier I get. And then, of course, it comes out this morning that Tejada’s name is on the Mitchell Report and he’ll be implicated this afternoon as a steroid user. I’m with Shamus over at Crawfish Boxes — this was a bad trade, and the Orioles came out way on top in this one. Luke Scott will probably outhit Miguel Tejada this year, as he’s going to be the starting left fielder for the O’s, and I have a feeling that Patton is going to be a Cy Young winner down the road.
All for two years of a guy that, in reality, looks like it’s going to be a year and a half.
