Tejada accused of stealing signs

After Miggs popped out in the 9th, he and Occasional Closer Matt Capps got into a shouting match, after which it was revealed that Capps thought/thinks he and Jose Cruz were stealing signs. Capps:

"Just compete," Capps told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette after the game. "You don't need to do any of that stuff. Those two have a thing going out there. I'm set, and he's not even looking at me. That tells me all I need to know."

When reached later by phone, Tejada denied any wrongdoing.

"I've never gotten signs," he told the Chronicle. "If he wants to disrespect me, that's fine. He shouldn't disrespect any coach."
Maybe it's organizational penance for being accused of tipping pitches in 2001. Equal and opposite reaction, and all...
