Cardinals interested in Tejada

Miguel Tejada needs an idiot to give him multiple years and multiple millions of dollars. And Tony LaRussa might just be that man. Take it away, Derrick Goold:

La Russa acknowledged interest in Miguel Tejada, as reported a week ago in The Post-Dispatch. It’s his understanding that Tejada would entertain a move to third base and it’s his opinion that Tejada could handle the position. Though the former American League MVP has lost the power that made him so potent a producer in Oakland and Baltimore, La Russa still sees Tejada as capable of handling a middle-of-the-order role. “We’ve talked about Miguel,” La Russa said.

He described him as an opponent that still gets your attention. That’s a fit for the middle of the order.
