Do you want Miguel Tejada back in an Orioles uniform?
We are switching gears and concentrating on baseball today.
No real reason, but why not?
We’ll keep the postseason NFL Prediction Friday going tomorrow. But we’re back to being seamheads today.
Andy MacPhail, the Orioles’ president of baseball operations, has shown a willingness the past few years to be environmentally friendly.
He has Reduced -- as in the club’s payroll.
And he has Recycled -- giving jobs to some of his old Chicago Cubs, such as Rich Hill, Lou Montanez and Felix Pie.
Now, there is a possibility he could Reuse.
As my Sun baseball partner Jeff Zrebiec wrote earlier this week, a lack of options at third base has put Miguel Tejada on the club’s short list at the hot corner.
Now that’s not to say there will be a reunion with Miggy, whom MacPhail traded to the Houston Astros in Dec. 2007, the day before the famed Mitchell Report on performance enhancing drugs came out.
But he’s definitely on MacPhail’s list, likely behind Joe Crede.
Tejada was a star and fan favorite here. He also was a dog and a fan target here. The guy can still hit and would be more willing to play third this go around. And, no matter the myriad problems he had here, he is a kind-hearted soul who is hard to dislike.
I, for one, liked Miggy the Person, but thought it was time for Miggy the Player to move on. And I don’t think two years have changed my mind.
