Tejada: It's done

Jeff Zrebiec just confirmed with Orioles sources that Miguel Tejada has agreed to terms on a one-year deal, pending a physical. That means that he'll start at third base for the Orioles and Garrett Atkins will be the starter at first base. Atkins seemed pretty sure of his role with the O's when he got here today, which should have been a clue.

Obviously, Orioles fans have some mixed feelings about Tejada from his first go-round with the club, but no one can deny that he injects a significant amount of offensive potential into the Orioles batting order.

There are some fair questions to ponder about his ability to play third base at a high level, but that's what spring training is for.

This must be a special occasion. Adam Jones just arrived in a tux.
