Miguel Tejada out of the East, Headed to the Astros

Today Miguel Tejada was dealt from the Baltimore Orioles to the Houston Astros for 5 prospects. Including outfielder Luke Scott, pitchers Matt Albers, Troy Patton and Dennis Sarfate, and third-base prospect Michael Costanzo. Tejada hit .296 with 18 home runs and 81 RBIs this season

This is good news for the AL East. As every team in the East has been a battle recently, the schedule has become a bit easier as the Orioles look for a bit of rebuilding. The Orioles in no way have become a push over but SS just got much weaker.

The next move expected is the trading of Erik Bedard. Its rumored the most active team involved in trade talks for the 28 year-old lefty are the Cincinnati Reds.

  1. I wonder how the O’s will be a contender, again, if they always trade their good players. Agreed that Bedard was hurt lately but this guy can make a huge difference in a roster. I will understand the frustration of the fans if Bedard is traded.
