Royals infielder Miguel Tejada is being suspended for 105 games for testing positive for amphetamines (for the third time), but the former MVP says he needed the Adderall to treat his Attention Deficit Disorder. “I admitted I made a mistake. But I want people to understand one thing: I wasn't using a drug to take advantage on the field, or be stronger or hit more home runs,” Tejada told ESPN. "I've been using it for the past five years and had medical permission from MLB. But my last permit expired on April 15 and they didn't give me another. I knew that I was in risk of breaking the rules, but at the same time, I could not stop using the medicine because I suffer from ADD. It's not a vice, it is a disease." The suspension will bench him until mid-2014, which at 39 years old, could mean the end of his baseball career.
