ESPN's Jeremy Schaap, Mitchell Report in tow, quickly perused the documents and briefly named the recently traded Astros' shortstop Miguel Tejada as a steroid user.

In the appendix, according to Schaap, checks written by Tejada are pictured.

The story here is whether the Houston Astros knew that Tejada would be named before consummating yesterday's blockbuster trade?

Did they ask him? Did Baltimore know before trading Tejada?

If Houston knew, they certainly didn't get a discount in the six-player trade.

In this brave new world of baseball, could Houston void the trade on the same basis when a team trades a player whose injuries were not disclosed  before the transaction?

On the local front, the naming of Tejada now includes six players with ties to the Oakland Athletics: Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire, Randy Velarde, Jason Giambi, Jeremy Giambi and three American League Most Valuable Players.
