from yahoo:

Jun 21 Correcting an earlier item, Bernie Wilson, of The Associated Press, reports Baltimore Orioles SS Miguel Tejada (wrist) appeared in the club's game Thursday, June 21, long enough to extend his consecutive-games streak to 1,152. Tejada grounded into a fielder's choice in the first inning, and then IF Chris Gomez pinch ran for Tejada. Interim manager Dave Trembley said that Tejada felt OK before the game but was uncomfortable once he was at bat. Trembley added that he had to "walk a fine line between doing what's right for the team and what's right for Tejada, out of respect. Today, I took him out of the game for the team, but I allowed him to have that at-bat out of respect for him." Tejada bunted into a force out on the play then left with a sore wrist.

How ridiculous. Tejada's consecutive games streak is worthless if this is what he'll do to extend it. The Orioles knew in advance that this was how it would play out, as they moved Tejada up to the second spot in the order to accomodate him. We're certainly not questioning Tejada's toughness, but if he was too hurt to play, he should have been a man and sat out.


%6

once they make sure its not a hairline fracture hell probably start playing again


He couldn't even keep his left had on the bat while taking practice swings in the on deck circle...he was swinging essentially one handed. All this did was add one more day to his DL stint if he does have to sit for a couple weeks.

I don't understand the move...unless they're going to do this every day until he's ready, which might be a while considering how he looked. Tejada's streak isn't important to anyone but Tejada and I think it speaks a lot to his dedication to himself instead of the team...Cal never pulled a stunt like this, he was banged up on occasion, but he was always better than the alternative. Tonight, Tejada was not even close to being the best player available.

ESPN just put up that he's got a broken wrist...

Cal Ripken, Jr. was allowing Kevin Costner, the actor, to stay at his house, following the wrap of "The Postman". One day, Ripken left for Camden Yards to play in a game. Somewhere between his home and the stadium, Cal realized that he had left something back at his house, and turned back to retrieve it. Upon arriving at his home, he found Kevin Costner in bed with his wife, Kelly. Cal then proceeded to beat the crap out of Costner, to the point that Costner was unable to make any publicity opportunities for a time. Cal then called the Orioles, and told them he wouldn't be coming in to play that day. Upon hearing this, the owner reminded Cal about his streak, telling him The Streak would end if he didn't play that day. Cal told him it was impossible for him to come in, so there went the streak. Reportedly, the owner told him not to worry, because he would take care of it. That night, the game was cancelled due to "electrical failure" with some lights on the field. The caller said that their was no problem with the lights, that everything else, including the hotels and restaurants that are part of Camden Yards, worked perfectly. The next day, the lights were fixed, Cal was able to play, and the streak stayed intact.



This is false.

Distal radial fracture if that means anything to anyone...sounds like a broken arm to me. Don't know what the recovery time looks like on that.

yeah, broken wrists for major league hitters are nothing to play around with. Crap, now I have to find a replacement for a midseason league where I have him.

Glad I've been switching off between Renteria and Tejada throughout the season :-° At least I can pick up a hot pitcher or another prospect throughout his DL stint.
