Orioles shortstop Miguel Tejada met with Andy MacPhail for 45 minutes yesterday, telling Baltimore's president of baseball operations that it's his preference to remain a shortstop but that being on a winning team remains his biggest priority. On the eve of what could be his last game in an Orioles uniform, Tejada said he didn't ask MacPhail for a trade, but he made it clear he's not interested in being with a team that's rebuilding. "I want to win," Tejada said. "It's not about changing positions. My point isn't about changing positions. My point is winning. I don't want to play every day just for money. I'm not that kind of person. I play for pride. I don't care about changing positions if we're going to be a winner, and I want to be on a team that is going to compete to win."
