      So he's a liar and a juicer- things are looking good for this guy. Maybe he can throw in some assault and gambling charges while he's at it.

        Even more credibility that Tejada had just got flushed down the toilet. He's certainly doing a good job, isn't he?

          The age thing was presented to him by his coaches when he was a teenager. That argument should be with the coaches and the system rather than the young player.

          That said, it is fraud against the major league clubs everytime he signed a high $ contract.

          Tejada only came clean because he was being investiagted and knew he would be outed.

          Wonder how many Latin players are doing the same? Glad the Orioles already got something for him.

              Before 9/11 it was very common for young Latin prospects to lie about their age. It seems everyone has forgotten AgeGate. Also, Julio Franco lied about his age as well but I don't remember many people hammering him about it.

                Yeahp, he sure is doing a good job...

                He's certainly heading to a credibility downhill with all this nonsense that happened in the past 3 years. Remember, if the FBI catch up with him, he could spend some jail time for lying to government officials and perjury. Three years of legal problems (the ones I listed) could (or possibly already) tarnish his career, as if the steroid scandal didn't ruin it enough.

                    He's had many years to come clean.

                      Exactly. He was a star player in Oakland, then when he was in Baltimore for a few more years, he had his chance. Why only now?

                      I remember in 2001 when that 14-year-old Little League player Danny Almonte got caught playing in a 12-year-old league, Pedro Martinez complained about "how much crap that Dominicans" got from America. This is just another unfortunate instance of some Dominicans lying about their ages.

                      I know they'll get contracts if they're a few years younger, but after Soriano and quite a few others, I think that some Latino ballplayers may stop complaining and look at themselves for the blame instead.

                        What exactly is AgeGate? After 9/11, the US government wanted to insure that people were here legally, and I'm sure that some countries whose confirmations of dates of birth weren't certain, had to be improved re their verifiability.

                        I'm not sure when Julio Franco had lied about his age. He's close to 50 now (he was born Aug 23, 1958) so was this in the mid-1980s? He debuted in 1982.

                          there were a lot of latin players who became two years older after 9/11.

                            I'm quite sure there were. After the foreign documents, including certificates of birth were soon becoming more closely scrutinized, quite a few became older. Soriano had surprised me, since we thought he was 26, then he suddenly became 28.

                            Must've been the thing to do, since saying you were 16 when you'd signed a Minor League deal would likely have sealed it, but not if you were 18.

                            Overall, I was just saying that people should look at the lie they've told re the age, instead of Pedro's infamous quote against how Dominicans were treated when more closely scrutinized.
