Orioles All-Star shortstop Miguel Tejada and President of Baseball Operations Andy MacPhail had a 45-minute sit-down Saturday, and Tejada made it clear he wants to be on a winning club and he's not interested in a rebuilding one. From The Sun:
"I want to win," Tejada said. "It's not about changing positions. My point isn't about changing positions. My point is winning. I don't want to play every day just for money. I'm not that kind of person. I play for pride. I don't care about changing positions if we're going to be a winner, and I want to be on a team that is going to compete to win."
For his part, MacPhail simply wanted to hear what Miggi wanted from Miggi, and what he heard was a man who does not want to be moved to third, first or the outfield:
It's just a matter of what we can get for him now, because Miguel Tejada will be playing his last game as an Orioles at 1:35 p.m. tomorrow. And part of me will be a little sad knowing my #10 jersey in my closet will be out of date by next February.
