Machine a hit for Tejada

Roch Around the Clock

May 28, 2007|By ROCH KUBATKO

Miguel Tejada has hit three home runs in his past four games. I guess that pitching machine really helped.

Was anyone shocked that Daniel Cabrera walked the leadoff hitter the next inning after Tejada gave him a 2-0 lead? Or that the runner scored? We've seen that happen way too many times.

I just hope Davey Johnson realizes that it's not 1996 or 1997. This is a different team. And Davey's never been a big fan of rebuilding. He'd rather take a good team and make it great. Do the 2007 Orioles qualify?

This is all premature, of course, because Sam Perlozzo is sitting in the manager's chair. But Johnson could become a reality.

What's next, "Baltimore" on the road jerseys?
