Miguel Tejada NL Player of the Week

Nice honor diluted tremendously by his two errors yesterday and the Astros dismal win-loss record last week. Here's the information:

Astros shortstop Miguel Tejada's league-leading .522 average last week helped him earn the honor of being the National League Player of the Week presented by Bank of America for the period through Sunday.

Tejada also topped the loop with his 12 hits, a 1.043 slugging percentage and 24 total bases.

Revisiting the American League temporarily during weekend Interleague Play pumped up Tejada -- and his numbers. In Houston's three-game series against the Texas Rangers, he batted .583 (7-for-12), including a 4-for-4 performance on Sunday, his second four-hit game of the season.

This is old hat to Tejada, who has earned the weekly award under each cap he has worn during his 13-year career -- twice with the A's and three times with the Orioles prior to this latest recognition, his first in the NL.
