Will Tejada sign with mariners?

Postby denvermax » Thu Dec 11, 2003 2:31 am

What are the chances of him signing with the Mariners? Hes been offered a contract from them and as a M's fan I really want to see him in a Mariners uniform.

I'd say there is a decent chance. So far I'm hearing that Detroit, Baltimore, Seattle, and the A's are all wanting to sign him.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Angels GM Bill Stoneman said free agents such as Vladimir Guerrero and Miguel Tejada were "probably not" options after Anaheim signed righty Bartolo Colon. Angels officials confirmed their interest in free-agent first baseman Rafael Palmeiro, but said a deal was not imminent


quess we can count the angels out of the bidding ...

Also, assistant GM Lee Pelekoudas described the slowly evolving talks with free agent shortstop Miguel Tejada as being "in a holding pattern."

Here's the latest on Tejada:

Miguel Tejada - SS - Oakland Athletics Dec 11

A high-ranking Orioles official told the Baltimore Sun said his team will definitely top Seattle's three-year, $25 million offer to Miguel Tejada.
The official indicated that the Orioles prefer signing Tejada to trading for Nomar Garciaparra. It still looks like Vladimir Guerrero is their top target, though. Source: Baltimore Sun

I hope its Baltimore just so the A's at least keep him out of the division.
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

How can the Orioles get both Vlad and Tejada? How much money do they have?!

I think they have about $30 million to spend this year. Remember, they've been paying Albert Belle for awhile. That's no more...
I'm back. Sorta.

lets say that baltimore did sign the two of them. where do you guys think their team would stand then? is it really wise to be hopeful of contention when youre in a division with the bosox and yanks as well as the young and hungry blue jays? those signings would still mean a 3rd or 4th finish. some of that money could be used to find some pitching.
