Just one day before the release of the Mitchell Report the Baltimore Orioles traded rumor steroid abuser Miguel Tejada to the Houston Astros. Coincidence?

"That really didn't have anything to do with it," Baltimore GM Andy MacPhail told the Washington Post. The Mitchell report, he said, "was never discussed" with the Astros.

In 2005, then-teammate Rafael Palmeiro implicated Tejada during a congressional investigation into Palmeiro's failed drug test, and a Los Angeles Times report in 2006 said Tejada was named as a steroid user by former teammate Jason Grimsley in a federal affidavit earlier that year.
