Markakis: Another Miggy testimonial
Nick Markakis just passed through the VIP area at FanFest and joined in the positive reaction to the news that Miguel Tejada has agreed to terms with the Orioles. Technically, the deal is not official, but even Andy MacPhail all but announced it from the stage during his second fan forum a few minutes ago.
"If there's anybody in baseball you want on your team, it's him,'' said Markakis. "He's a high-energy guy who wants to be out there every day, and you want a guy like that on your team."
I asked Nick if the addition of Tejada would give the Orioles a "top-to-bottom" lineup and he corrected me.
"As much as I love Miggy and am happy he's back, I think we already had a very good lineup,'' Markakis said, "but adding Miggy just makes us that much better."
