Well I may be a little late to the Miggie party but I wanted to chime in on the peculiarity. Not only did the bomb drop last week that Miguel Tejada is in fact 33 and not 31, but he isn’t even Miguel Tejada. Who did the Houston Astros sign? Well, none other than Miguel Tejeda.
Well I ask you as an astute observer, Where do the lies stop? It may be that Mr. Tejeda may have lied about taking steroids. I now don’t know what or who to believe. What if Miguel Tejada doesn’t even play shortstop. What then? What if it turns out he isn’t even Dominican? My god, what if it turns out that Miguel Tejada is left handed Mexican hitter Karim Garcia?
Think about it. Karim Garcia was supposed to be the best thing to come out of Mexico since ponchos and diarrhea. But he never amounted to a hill of pinto beans. Have you ever noticed that Miguel Tejada/Tejeda and Karim Garcia never played at that same time? Me neither. I never bothered to notice. Perhaps Miguel “Karim Garcia” Tejada/Tejeda wanted it that way. Think about it. When is a left handed slugger who can’t hit that ball not a left handed slugger who can’t hit the ball? Exactly.
