Haven't heard his name in a while.
Miguel Tejada, huh? Over at Daily Dish, it sounds like Minnesota has Miggy on "the back burner", while the source itself (Fox Sports, MLB Buzz) has the smoking gun of maybe-ness:
Meanwhile, one person with knowledge of Tejada’s market said he remains "on the radar" for the Twins but that he is not one of the team's top priorities.
It's certainly not the first time this off-season we've seen the Twins attached to Tejada...even loosely. He was worth 2.6 wins above replacement last year, but for any number of reasons I'm not high on bringing him in to man third base. I know, I'm crazy, but (one of) the last thing(s) I want is to bring in a 36-year old with a poor history of personal conditioning, ask him to change positions, and then expect him to hit anywhere close to the .313/.340/.455 he managed in Houston last summer. The guy walked in an astounding 2.9% of his plate appearances.
I'm with the Twins here. There are other routes to try before we think about this seriously.
