Has anyone asked Rafael Palmeiro what he thinks about this Miguel Tejada news?

Well now: "Former Orioles shortstop Miguel Tejada is expected to plead guilty in U.S. District Court in Washington tomorrow morning to a charge that he lied to congressional investigators about illegal performance-enhancing drugs -- telling them he knew nothing though he had discussed steroids with an Oakland Athletics teammate and paid him for human growth hormone....It was part of the perjury investigation of former Oriole Rafael Palmeiro."

Palmeiro's claims -- that a tainted B12 supplement provided to him by Tejada caused the positive test result -- always seemed weak and bizarre. Now? A little less bizarre? As of today, it appears that Tejada will be charged with lying to Congress. And not Palmeiro.
