Tejada’s career was already on its way down since his huge 150 RBI season with the Orioles. I can’t see him playing in the majors again after all this passes. I feel bad for the Astros. They traded for him last year, got a subpar season in 2008 and now they might lose him for good due to his lying that happened before he was a member of the Astros organization. Shame on you, Miguel Tejada!
