Amid reports that Miguel Tejada could be headed out of town, the man who signed the shortstop to a $72 million deal before the 2004 season said the All-Star is not going anywhere.

"The Orioles have no interest in trading Miguel Tejada," said Orioles principal owner Peter Angelos. "He is an exciting and exceptional athlete and a great baseball player."
