Tejada's timing for a trade request has me wondering...why now? His excuse for wanting a trade was that he didn't like where the Orioles were going. He said they weren't going out and improving their club. He says all of this right after they agreed to sign Ramon Hernadez. I think its funny that he didn't say it before they signed him, when they had actually not done anything. I think it's even more funny that he requested a trade right after the Sox traded their starting SS and now have a glaring hole. Is it coincidence that he asked to be traded after his current team upgraded, but a winning team in the same division traded their starter at the same position, or is he trying to seize the opportunity to play SS for a contender in Boston?
