According to Alyson Footer, the Astros won't be signing Miguel Tejada. The sticking point?
Ed talked to Tejada's agent today. Ed is certain a deal will not be done. Length of contract is the sticking point.
And from McTaggart:
"I'm not optimistic we're going to be able to get anything done on Miggy. We love him death and everything he's brought to the organization, but I don't necessarily see a common ground."
Wade said the sticking point is length of terms of the contract. Tejada made about $14 million last season, but the Astros told him he'd had to have a large pay cut and play third base if he was going to return for a third season in Houston. That return now seems very unlikely.
