Link-O-Rama: Tejada, Olsen, Royals, The Onion

Nov 17, 2009, 3:27 PM EDT

* General manager Ed Wade said that the Astros “are not prepared to close any doors with” free agent Miguel Tejada, but Brian McTaggart of MLB.com speculates that the 35-year-old may asked to move from shortstop to third base if he re-signs.
* Scott Olsen is feeling good following season-ending shoulder surgery, but the Nationals may decide to cut him loose rather than take him to arbitration. Olsen showed a lot of promise as a 22-year-old rookie in 2006, but has gone just 20-30 with a 5.10 ERA in 77 starts since.
* As if Zack Greinke winning the AL Cy Young wasn’t enough good news for one day, the Royals have reportedly been picked over the Red Sox to host the All-Star game in 2012. If you’re curious, that’s the final season of Greinke’s contract.
* Unfortunately the news isn’t all good for Greinke and company, as The Onion reports: “Kansas City Fails To Pick Up Option On Royals.”

    Love the onion sports stories, the article on Jeter’s hit “milestone” was awesome.

    Love the onion sports stories, the article on Jeter’s hit “milestone” was awesome.

    I liked the one about how unnecessary the jump throw was on a routine grounder, but the hit one was funny as well.
