Kansas City Royals infielder Miguel Tejada becomes the next MLB player to be suspended by the league.

Tejada, who currently is on the 60-day disabled list due to a strained calf, will be suspended 105 games for his continual use of amphetamines, Adderall to be exact.

Miguel Tejada has been caught a total of three times for the use of amphetamines during his entire career. The second offense happened last week when Tejada failed another drug test. The third strike happened today, once again testing positive for the use of amphetamines. This was clearly the nail in the coffin.

The former 2002 Most Valuable Player will begin serving his punishment beginning today. Tejada will be suspended 25 games for failing the drug test for the second time, with an additional 80-game ban due to his third strike. The suspension will include the remaining 41 games of the 2013 season and the first 64 games of 2014.

From 2000-04, Miguel Tejada was hands down, one of the most dangerous power hitters in the game. With the exception of the 2003 season, Tejada launched 30-plus homeruns and drove in at least 110 RBIs and more.

In thinking about all of Miguel Tejada’s accomplishments on the field, it’s yet again another sad day for the sport of baseball.

The 39-year-old Miguel Tejada is contemplating retirement due to this overwhelming layoff (105), which proves to now be the third longest suspension in MLB history.

  1. Once again honest Bud knows absolutely noting. Bud Selig is like a hemorrhoid pain that you simply cannot get rid of . Dumb enough to grant Ryan Braun a sixty-five game slap on the wrist, but he as not got the balls to banish Miguel Tejada away from baseball for life. This only further exemplifies why the game of baseball is a complete joke! It’s leadership is gutless and the players themselves, are all a bunch god-damn hypocrites!

      We can’t disagree with you on your comment Alan. The MLB is looking very bad right now and as more players get caught, it will get worse. We just hope that the “cheating” finally gets resolved so the game could move on once and for all.
