Today Miguel Tejada’s career as a Baltimore Orioles is over. For me it was an inevitability, one that I have been resigned to. I wish him good luck and hope he can find success in the NL.
As for the trade……right now I think it was a mistake. The trade would have been better served to yeild just one YOUNG position player who can be an oriole for years to come. As it stands, we have Luke Scott a 29 year-old utility outfielder who is not "the future" for us. Three pitchers who weren’t the prize prospects of the Astro organization and Michael Constanzo, who may be the most promising of the players we recieved. I admit this is a knee jerk reaction for me, I hope to hear from Andy in the upcoming hours and find out the methodology behind this deal.
