Miguel Tejada: ESPN Plays "To Catch A Predator"

I don't give a fuck how old Miguel Tejada is. I'm not sure why anyone else would either, outside of the Astros' front office. They have a legitimate reason to be concerned about it, since they're paying him a contract that seems to be based in part of a misrepresentation. Beyond that, I don't think this is a big deal at all. And while I certainly think it's a story that should be reported, it seems to me it's worth maybe a mention and a comment from him or his agent, and the team and that's about it. It's not like the guy is Danny Almonte trying to play in the Little League World Series or something. The way ESPN ambushed this guy, and acted like they had just caught him lying about scamming old people out of their social security checks or something. But from the way the interviewer seemed so pleased with himself, you would think that was exactly what he uncovered.

Yeah man, that's BS. I agree.

And it was hardly a secret that Tejada wasn't his proclaimed age. I don't doubt that the Astros were well aware of that when they signed him. In fact, Rob Neyer says that this info was on his driver's license and green card. He just claimed to be younger. Hardly something to be so excited about. (Neyer is an ESPN insider link, btw)
