Might Miguel Tejada go back on his word?

(That's the kind of sensationalist headline writing, with no real tie to the story, that pisses me off. Happy New Year's Eve.) is reporting that Miguel Tejada might decide to play in the Dominican Winter League, after all.

Just over a month after saying he would not be playing winter ball for the first time in his career - in order to prepare for the 2009 season - Tejada couldn't stand seeing Aguilas Cibaenas lose on television anymore. So he flew to the Dominican to watch them lose in the dugout. Because that's more personally satisfying.

What do you think? Might, at some point this season, Miggy get upset watching the Orioles lose on television and show up in Toronto in the dugout wearing a suit?

Whatever it takes to get his spring training started early, I'm all for it.

However, I am concerned with the company they keep. I mean, this is one of their cheerleaders...
