Sox have no interest in Tejada

A week ago the Red Sox shot down rumors of a possible deal for White Sox backup shortstop Juan Uribe.

Now, a few days later there’s a Houston Chronicle report of Boston having interest in Miguel Tejada, which has also been completely dismissed.

According to team and league sources the answer again is “not interested.” The Red Sox have no intention of taking on any of Tejada’s personal baggage (Mitchell Report and feds investigation).

The Sox are still trying to acquire a relief pitcher and if they had any interest in an Astro in would be for 41-year-old righty reliever Doug Brocail, who has held righties to a .189 average.
