Boston interested in signing Tejada?

NESN's John Beattie has some speculation on the future of Miguel Tejada, and he's making a case for Fenway Park:

Based on the depleted inventory of available shortstops, Tejada is the best answer at shortstop for the local nine in 2010. However, at age 35, he's clearly not the long-term solution at a position that has seen a variety of cast members since 2004...

...If this year proved one thing, it's that offense ruled in the American League (see: NYY, LAA) and sticking Tejada's stick into the eighth or ninth slot in an already stout lineup will make hurlers cringe with fear. While the next Johnny, Rico or Nomar isn't walking through that Yawkey Way clubhouse door anytime soon, Tejada may be a reliable option for the time being with a big bat.
