The Orioles completed a trade, sending Miguel Tejada out West once again.

In case you don’t remember, this is the second time the O’s have traded the third-baseman. The first time came in December 2007.

The team shipped Tejada to Houston for a whole host of players, including Luke Scott, Mike Costanzo, Troy Patton, Matt Albers, and Dennis Sarfate. Costanzo is the only player who is no longer in the Orioles system.

This go-around, the O’s shipped Tejada to San Diego, where they hope Tejada can revive his bat, and show form similar to his past two seasons, when he hit 13 and 14 home runs, and drove in 66 and 86 runs.

This time the Orioles didn’t rob the opposing team blind, getting Wynn Pelzer in a straight-up, one-for-one deal.

If you’ve never heard of Pelzer, don’t beat yourself up over it.
