Major League Baseball’s Cold War just got a lot more interesting.
Evidently, the Orioles are not about to let the Yankees and the Red Sox polarize the landscape in the American League East, and Baltimore fired their first shot by signing free agent shortstop Miguel Tejada to the largest contract in franchise history—a six-year contract worth a reported $72 million.
In 2003, The former Oakland infielder posted 27 homers and drove in 106 runs while hitting .287 for the Athletics, marking the fourth straight season in which he has posted more than 25 homers and 100 RBI. In his MVP season of 2002, Tejada recorded career highs in home runs (34), RBI (131), and batting average (.308).
Great signing for the Birds!
If they can sign Vlady and Pudge or Javy. They could be the surprise team in the East
