Any guesses on what Tejada will do in Baltimore? How much more of a hitting park is it than in Oakland? Will the lineup be better than in Oakland last season? Will he steal more than he did with the "station-to-station" A's? I know some of you fellas are really up on this sort of thing, so I thought I'd ask the best.

Tejada's average at home is like 40 points lower than on the road I heard, and since '01 he has hit .319 at Camden Yards (though of course some of that has to be attributed to the pitching he has faced). Oakland is more of a pitchers park, especially with those vast stretches of foul ground territory. What a great day! I hope we can still get Vlad/a catcher/maybe a decent SP/decent reliever (of course I am mostly concerned about Vlad and a catcher ;-D ).

Worst deal of the off season. Pay 72 mil to still lose? Players should just be honest. Miggy says winning is important? Why not just say, biggest deal gets me? In 3 years, Miggy will have the Arod blues. Teams like Orioles need to rebuild like Cleveland, through the farm. Bad teams signing big free agents is silly.

I agree with Hootie here. Seems like a bad deal.

As for his average being higher away from Oakland, I'd like point out that now he has to face 3 of the top 5-6 pitchers in the league that he never had to face before. Not as big of a deal as if he'd signed with Seattle, but it's still something.

I must admit that it's nice to see a few more teams try to put a better product on the field this year. Detroit, Baltimore, and Tampa Bay have all made moves to try to improve their ballclubs. I'm not saying that any of them will compete, just that it's refreshing. :-)

Yes, even the Orangebird got Vlad, Tej, and Pudge ... it is hard to compete with the Yanks and Sox ... !+)
