Normally information like this would put one in "douchebag" status. But not so for Miguel Tejada, about whom these things are absolutely true.
Tejada flew Pence to St. Louis on his private jet, wore a huge diamond-encrusted watch, and a vest! Then this...
But it's Tejada's lighter moments that have rubbed off on Pence. It's the side of Tejada not captured in the stat books. Be it singing the chorus of Toby Keith's "I'm Not As Good As I Once Was" after making an out or pretending to shine a spotlight on a pitcher who strikes him out, Tejada has shown his younger teammates the importance of keeping things loose, even when the going gets tough.
