Padres add Miguel Tejada in exchange for Wynn Pelzer

This is the move! This is the big bat! Miguel Tejada is now a Padre and we gave up Wynn Pelzer to get him.

If Tejada's a starter for us, this likely means that Chase Headley will move back into the outfield so that Tejada can take third base. I am fine with this. Tejada's a free swinger who has seen better days, but he may be just that extra upgrade that we get over Oscar Salazar or even a Hairston brother on a non-clutch day.

If I told you at the start of the season that July 29th would arrive and Adrian Gonzalez, Heath Bell and Miguel Tejada were all Padres, you would've had me committed. ADMIT IT.

GO PADRES!!!

Look at him. He looks like a proud Padre.
