    Orioles Why Duquette, why?

    The Orioles are close to a deal with Miguel Tejada, reports Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com (Twitter links). GM Dan Duquette told Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com that they'll watch Tejada work out at the team's complex in Florida on Monday before officially signing him (Twitter link).

    "We've got to take a look at him first," said the GM.

    Tejada, 37, hit just .239/.270/.326 in 343 plate appearances with the Giants last season before being released in September. The SFX client spent 2004-2007 and the first half of 2010 with Baltimore, hitting .305/.354/.481 overall. Tejada could provide some third base depth if Mark Reynolds continues to struggle.
    Baltimore is actually playing well but will now bring what should be considered as an automatic out. I don't see why they couldn't have landed Bobby Abreu to replace Mark Reynolds at DH. Anything is better than Tejada!

    Because what better way to show you spent nearly a decade away from the game than to sign a player who's been past his prime for nearly that long?
