On Orioles shortstop Miguel Tejada

I'm starting to think his better days are behind him. He just doesn't hit for power or in the clutch anymore and we keep batting him fourth. Perhaps he'll heat up as the weather warms up, but my feeling is if July 31 rolls around and we get a good offer for him ... we should move him.

By the end of the year, he'll be at 25-plus homers and 100-plus RBIs, more than any other shortstop in the game.

Tejada looks more lost in the field than he does at the plate. I really think until someone starts hitting around/behind him, he won't see any good pitches to hit.
