Warning: Holes can be deeper than you think

Think McLane (see posting below) won't be regretting the Tejada deal if THIS comes to pass? Wow. Forget the prospect of a bad year or lockerroom distraction. How about DEPORTATION?!? Will that bring a tad bit of regret, Drayton?

Miguel Tejada's immigration status could be in peril in light of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee's decision to ask the Department of Justice to investigate whether the new Astros shortstop lied to federal investigators in 2005.

Tejada, a native of the Dominican Republic, is a legal U.S. resident with a green card. Yet there are some instances in which he could be denied entry back into the country just by admitting he committed a crime for which he is being investigated.

Yes, it appears that a lot of things have to fall a certain way for this to happen, but it's still entirely possible. Talk about a bad week...
3PM 1/17/08 UPDATE: So it begins.
The FBI has opened a preliminary investigation into whether baseball All-Star shortstop Miguel Tejada lied to federal authorities when he denied taking steroids or other performance-enhancing drugs.
