And, if you read between the lines, it appears it may have been a paperwork problem. He was previously approved for the prescription stimulant he was using because of diagnosed ADHD. But, he didn't renew it with MLB, even though he renewed it with his doctor and pharmacy.

Talk about insult added to injury: goes on the 60-day DL on Wednesday with a strained calf, gets suspended yesterday for the next 105 games for taking amphetamines. So little attention paid that I guess the chief insult is to his wallet.

We may not see Miguel Tejada in a big-league uniform again but he'll keep playing.

Proving to be a very good bench player for the Royals. Scored the winning run today after going 2-for-2 as a late-inning sub.

Along with Chavez, also signed a minor league deal with the Royals. A guy who has made $95 million playing baseball so far has to really love the game to do that at age 38, no?
