Rotoworld reports that the Cubs and Orioles have discussed a trade for Tejada but no official proposal has been made. They insinuate that a Ronny Cedeno/Felix Pie package would be the likely scenario for a trade. A stiff price to pay but I would pay it – Tejada still has three years left on his contract. BTW Cedeno is currently batting sixth in his winter league.
In unrelated news the Chicago Tribune ran an article that was very complimentary about Juan Pierre’s work ethic. Regardless of what happens with Pie we need to lock this guy up – Felix strikes out way too much to be a leadoff hitter.
