Getting Miggi with it
The only good thing about today's news that Miguel Tejada (left) has been charged with lying to congressional investigators in 2005? The knowledge that Andy MacPhail got him out of town just before the Mitchell Report was released and we can continue to treat Miggi like he's somebody else's problem.
That, and the fact that we finally have closure on this steroids thing.
You're not laughing.
This really is the never-ending story. Tejada will appear in court in Washington tomorrow and, presumably, get some kind of probation and a lecture about telling the truth. Maybe the judge will tell him he should be more like Alex Rodriguez.
Meanwhile, I've been reading the various opinions on what should be done with the remaining 103 names on that list of players who tested positive for steroids during baseball's supposedly anonymous 2003 survey testing program. I can make a good argument either way, but what's the point? The names will get out. I guess it would be better if they came out all at once to lessen the overall impact, but I'm willing to bet they'll come out in small, painful increments so baseball can continue to wallow in this scandal for another year or two.
