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.
They're not even charging him with lying about taking steroids, but lying about whether he knew a teammate was taking steroids. Of course the prosecutors allege that Tejada bought HGH in 2003, so it's all quite obvious that he's targeted for being naughty but suffering for some trumped-up charge.
This all comes a day after Alex Rodriguez admitted his own steroid use on national television. That's two Dominicans in two days; I fully expect Juan Marichal to come forward and admit he pitched for eight years hopped up on Whatchamacallits and Mr. Pibb.
