    Cardinals Interested In Miguel Tejada
    By Ben Nicholson-Smith [June 11 at 10:58am CST]
    Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals "expanded their search for an additional hitter to include" Miguel Tejada. Since Troy Glaus is out for a while and Khalil Greene is still rehabbing, Tejada could fit on the left side of their infield and provide some offense.

    So far he's leading the league with a .355 batting average to go along with an OPS of .899. Though some see Tejada as a third baseman, he has never actually player third in the major leagues. He makes $13MM this year before becoming a free agent after the season.


    ESPN.com's Buster Olney weighs in, saying he doesn't think the Astros, or any team owned by Drayton McLane would deal a key player to a division rival.

    I HOPE NOT.. hate seeing the Cards improve and the Reds do nothing!!

    Based on 3-year away averages, Tejada is actually a slight offensive downgrade over a healthy Encarnacion (though I realize the Reds would make up significantly on defense), but I tend to agree I'd rather have Tejada.

    I believe Adrian Beltre is the best option at third base for the Reds to upgrade to (both offensively and defensively).
