Just got a little bit of info from my White Sox source concerning the now deceased White Sox trade for Miguel Tejada.
Word is that the White Sox bowed out late Friday when the Orioles insisted on Brandon McCarthy or Lance Broadway in addition to the other players. It seems Broadway’s status pick in the 2005 June draft would’ve necessitated his inclusion as a PTBNL. The White Sox wouldn’t budge, and the deal died.
One other new tidbit is that the Orioles changed gears and attempted to engage the White Sox in an Erik Bedard trade. It is speculated that Jose Contreras would’ve been involved in such a deal, but that is not confirmed.
