    That's an awful lot in return for what Tejada has become. Maybe playing at Minute Maid will help a little, but still. Makes me wonder what a top line starter is really going to cost.

    Wow. I just can't believe the Astros agreed to this trade the day before the Mitchell Report is released.

    I don't think anyone knows for sure what is going to result from this report, but to this point people (Jose Guillen) have been suspended just for being associated in the investigations, so I certainly wouldn't be surprised to see suspensions come from this.

    Re: Tejada to Astros

    Did the Astros really give up a whole lot here? I saw two of the prospects were only their 3rd and 6th best. Luke Scott is nothing all that special. Seem somewhat right on par really. This seems like the Reds giving up Votto, Maloney, Freel and some scraps.

    I don't even think they gave up a Votto. They did give up a good player or two. I really like Luke Scott. He is stronger than any hitter I have seen in a long time.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Re: Tejada to Astros

    The Astros gave up WAY too much! I'm very pleased to see them make this mistake...

    Tejada 2007 OPS+: 109
    Luke Scott 2007 OPS+: 119

    Tejada career OPS+: 114
    Scott career OPS+: 125

    So, the Orioles get a young cheap, and improving hitter for an expensive, declining, and possibly linked to steroids shortstop (that doesn't play that great of defense anymore either)... Oh yeah, and the Orioles get four other prospects...

    Nice trade for the O's...

    As a fan of the Reds and not the Astros- I like it!
    Tejada may very well show up on the Mitchell report. We shall see tomorrow!

    Tejada is only two years older than Scott.
    Patiently awaiting the Orioles' next winning season.

    Re: Tejada to Astros

    A supremely stupid move by the Astros. His numbers are going down and everybody knows why. He will probably be named in the Mitchell report and the Astros give 5 freaking players for this guy? Rest assured Reds fans your team will not be last in 2008.

    Re: Tejada to Astros

    Do you think he's declined because he got off the roids or because he refused to take a day off for the past 6 years? He also plays winter ball ever year. I think he's simply wearing down.
