MLB News and Notes: Tejada, Bonds and Pedro

It turns out that Miguel Tejada has no hard feelings towards the Baltimore Orioles after being traded last winter right before he was outed in the Mitchell Report.  I wonder if the feeling is mutual, afterall, he caused quite a bit of problems for Rafael Palmeiro with that “B12” supplement he gave him.  Oh Miggy, always so positive:

“I’m a free agent this year. You never know. I might come back.”

If you be honest about your age Miggy, and tell the truth to Congress, you might be welcome back.

Barry Bonds still wants to play baseball.  His agent Jeff Borris is planning on contacting 30 MLB teams to field his client’s interest in returning to the game.  Borris is still pushing that collusion angle judging from this quote from USA Today:

“Major League Baseball was successful in conspiring in keeping Barry out of uniform in 2008. Unless they have a change of heart, or see an error in their ways, I seriously doubt that clubs will give him the opportunity to play this year.”

Word from MLB TradeRumors is that the St. Louis Cardinals may explore the possibility of siging Pedro Martinez and using him in the closer role!  Pedro’s right shoulder has deterorated over the last few seasons, but he may have enough left in the tank to throw an inning every other day.
