Miguel Tejada expected to plead guilty to charges of lying to Congress about steroids


    WASHINGTON -- All-Star shortstop Miguel Tejada has been charged with lying to Congress about steroids. Tejada is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday where he is expected to plead guilty.

    The charges against Tejada, who currently plays for the Houston Astros, were outlined in documents filed in Washington federal court on Tuesday.

    The documents indicate that a plea agreement has been reached with Tejada.

    Messages left for his attorney, Mark Tuohey, were not immediately returned.

    The documents were filed a day after superstar Alex Rodriguez admitted to past use of performance-enhancing drugs.

    The FBI also is investigating whether Roger Clemens, a seven-time Cy Young winner, lied to Congress last year when he denied using steroids or human growth hormone.


I don't know if it's all coincidence or if the A-Rod news suddenly jolted Congress, but either way, it looks like the steroid witch hunt is back in full force. And I don't think there's any way Tejada avoids jail time here. Aside from Clemens, I just wonder who gets targeted now?

This is great news, as I've been looking for a job here in Houston for the past few weeks.

They're worse than Hawk from what I've heard, simply on the grounds at least with Hawk you're bound to get one long rambling story about Yaz (the player, not the 80's group) every game. Plus, Darrin Jackson isn't nearly as hard on the ears as Waldman....
