O's Trade Tejada for Five Others

Superstar shortstop Miguel Tejada -- one of the current players named in Thursday's Mitchell Report -- has been traded by the Baltimore Orioles to the Houston Astros for five no name players.

The four-time All-star and 2002 AL MVP gets to wipe the slate clean in Texas, while outfielder Luke Scott, pitchers Matt Albers, Troy Patton and Dennis Sarfate, along with third baseman Michael Costanzo get to hang out in Baltimore.

"I feel very happy with this trade, because it's something that I've been really looking forward to," says Tejada.
Yeah, for at least the last two seasons.
