    As has been posted before, it will take much more than Tejada to upright that sinking ship. I believe the 'stros problems go much deeper than what Tejada alone can correct

    Friday, July 28, 9 p.m. ET: The Orange County Register is reporting that the Angels turned down a deal of Scot Shields, Ervin Santana and Howie Kendrick for Miguel Tejada. Well, of course they did. I was able to independently confirm this, though there's some indication that I may have the same source as the Register. The O's are doing their due diligence, seeing if the Astros offer is the best available. All indications are that they are ready and willing to move Tejada.

    The flurry cometh. A bunch of deals after Lee got dealt, I knew it and I love it.

    So what do folks think? Is that a good deal for HOU or for BAL?

    I think Everett and Ensberg are both nice players and can help. Nieve is going to be needed to replace Clemens or Pettite next year. But Tejada does make them much better this year, even if they get much worse next year and beyond in my opinion.

    I also do not think Tejada is enough to get them in the race. That offense is putrid and this gives them only two bats instead of just one.
