huh? Tejada was a free agent signing for the Orioles.


Yes, he let both Giambi and Tejada go via free agency, and held onto Eric Chavez. "Sold high" was probably not the proper term. Nonetheless, he let the both of them go before everything came out about HGH and the roids.


Giambi would still be in Oakland if Beane would have given him a no trade clause. Seems more like dumb luck than anything.

And nothing has been proven about Tejada. Only that he is linked to an ongoing investigation which I would imagine dozens of ballplayers are.


Exactly. And I don't know if letting Tejada go was so "great" for the A's anyways.

H/AB R HR RBI SB AVG
2006 96/308 54 16 54 4 .312
2005 199/654 89 26 98 5 .304
2004 203/653 107 34 150 4 .311

Crosby
2006 61/248 31 8 32 4 .246
2005 92/333 66 9 38 0 .276
2004 130/545 70 22 64 7 .239

That's a big drop off and I'm sure they would love to have a steroid-free Giambi back the way he's hitting the ball right now.

RBI are a function of how many times he came to the plate with runners on. I don't see how any steroid would help with that. :-D

Tejada's also avoided the injuries associated with the other roiders. I really don't think a juicer could play SS the way he does...then again, I wouldn't think a fatty could do it either :-b
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

I can't believe there are people who actually overlook this stuff and mark it as "what happened, happened". MLB has done a terrible job at solving the problem, and the owners don't care as long as they get the W's. If they could come to their senses and donate a small amount of profit for research and find a way to detect HGH.

I am sick of all this Player's Assosication involvement. They get all defensive and start claiming that full out steroid testing and HGH testing and blood testing won't be approved. Guess what guys, you work for the owners, you'll do as told. This isn't hockey where you can go and play in Europe, you're pretty much screwed if you wanna quit (No, Japan won't take that many players in). If a player is unwilling to comply it kinda shows that he is somehow involved to begin with. I don't see anything wrong with agreeing to be tested as aplayer if I know that A) I am not a user, and B) It will help the sport. I have been in favor of some of the Player Assosiation moves in the past, like the 10 year rule and other benefits to the players, but this on their part is quite ridiculius.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

from rotoworld:

Miguel Tejada - SS - Orioles


The Washington Post has corrected an earlier report that stated Miguel Tejeda had been linked to the ongoing investigation involving Jason Grimsley's affidavit.
No link has been established. The rumors will continue, but if Tejada's name is in the affadavit, no one is going public with it. Jun. 27 - 5:09 pm et

Grimsley Affidavit (Merged)

Postby TheYanks04 » Sat Sep 30, 2006 11:40 pm

Looks like the dirt is starting to stick to Clemens and Tejada.

Rotoworld:

Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Miguel Tejada, Brian Roberts, Jay Gibbons and David Segui are accused by Jason Grimsley of using performance-enhancing drugs in an affadavit.

Those were the names that were blacked out in the affidavit filed on May 31 when Grimsley was caught with HGH. According to the affidavit, Grimsley told investigators that Clemens and Pettitte "used athletic performance-enhancing drugs." He also said Tejada, Roberts and Gibbons "took anabolic steroids." Segui, who retired after 2004, previous admitted to using HGH on the advance of his doctor. Grimsley has complained to friends that federal agents credited him with statements and disclosures he didn't make, and it's doubtful that he'll ever publically name names.
