Miguel Tejada is tired of answering questions about performance enhancing drugs and insists he has been clean ever since former teammate Rafael Palmeiro got caught.
He insists that the Palmeiro incident shook him up quite a bit and taught him a very important life lesson. “If you do something bad – don’t get caught”.
Tejada points to his statistics as further proof that he is off the juice. “Look at my stats – I haven’t hit with power since Raffy took the rap”
Tejada averaged 28 homers per 162 games before the Palmeiro suspension and has averaged 18 homers per 162 games since.
