Roch Around The Clock

So it only took two seasons for Miguel Tejada to decide that he wants out of Baltimore. When he arrived for his first spring training, didn't he make headlines by standing in front of his new teammates and announcing that the losing was over? It turned out to be a bigger job than he expected. Now the whining has begun. Lovely.

We know the Orioles need to add at least one quality starting pitcher, and it's frustrating to see major deals being pulled off by division or regional rivals. But this is no time for the supposed heart and soul of the team to jump ship. Or at least threaten to. There are ways for Tejada to apply some pressure to the front office, if that's his intent, but venting to an Associated Press reporter probably isn't the best method.
