Tejada's Press Conference

Here's the link to the video.

What did you think? Look, I don't like the term "coming clean" after it's been out that you did whatever you did - that's not coming clean, that's just owning up. So Tejada and A-Rod owned up. But what I saw from Tejada is genuine regret in his few public comments. Not the close-up, off-color (literally) shots of A-Rod's ridiculously landscaped face, but actual regret. And whether or not you think Miggs is guilty or not guilty, it was good to see.

Do I think that, had Adam Piatt and Rafael Palmeiro not sung like birds, Tejada would be holding this press conference? Not on his own initiative. Like A-Rod, I don't think the guilt was eating him up for six years. But it was good to see.
