The Orioles continue to discuss possible trades for disgruntled shortstop Miguel Tejada and no less than seven teams are interested. The Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox, Houston Astros, New York Mets, Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Angels are among teams that would love to have the talented Tejada. But are they willing to pay Baltimore?s price? According to team and media sources, the most serious discussions are with the Cubs, who are dangling a package that includes standout right-handed pitcher Mark Prior. According to two industry sources, there were preliminary discussions between the Orioles, Cubs and Oakland Athletics on a three-way deal that included Tejada, Orioles lefthander Erik Bedard, Prior and Oakland ace Barry Zito heading to new homes. The Birds would get Zito and Prior, the Cubs would get Tejada and the A?s would add Bedard. But that type of complex trade takes time and is at best a longshot.
