And Tejada moves
The Orioles get five players for the declining, expensive, and increasingly immobile shortstop. Wow.
Dave adds: The five players aren’t very good. A couple of back-end starters without much upside, a run of the mill corner OF, and a pair of fringe prospects. Of course, I don’t think much of Tejada either. Both teams still stink, but the Orioles save some money and don’t get demonstrably worse, so I guess they win the trade.
Also, Jeff Kent’s agent on Kent’s return:
“He is actively pursuing his customary and rigorous offseason conditioning and weightlifting program, and is very focused on helping his team win the World Series this year,” Klein wrote. “He asked me to wish all of you and your families a happy holiday season.”
Doing a lot of truck washing, then?
