Tejada no longer streaking

Baltimore Orioles SS Miguel Tejada was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a broken left wrist, ending his streak of consecutive games played at 1,152, the fifth-longest in big league history. He was still 1480 games behind Cal Ripken's record. ''I think this is better for me and for the team to have somebody in there who can help the team,'' Tejada said before the Orioles played at Arizona on Friday night. ''Right now, I can't help the team.''

Juan Pierre of the Los Angeles Dodgers now has the longest active streak at 334 games. David Ortiz also has an ongoing active streak - most consecutive games played with KFC stain on his uniform.

I thought it was a little gay that he came out for one at bat and then had a pinch runner. What a puss.
