Jiovanni Mier apparently said a scout told him the Astros would be getting rid of Miguel Tejada.
“I think it’s irrelevant. You got one guy who’s an All-Star shortstop who’s got a pretty good history of performance at this level. He’s having another All-Star-caliber season. And you’ve got an 18-year-old kid who is hopefully beginning his journey in professional baseball pretty soon to reach what’s right now a pretty far horizon. So who we select today … or yesterday and how it impacts on the composition of the big club in the short term is irrelevant.”
I totally agree with Easy Eddie here. Trading Tejada has absolutely no impact on Mier's career, and if that's true, that scout needs to get taken behind the woodshed. What happens after that is up to someone else.
