Teixeira: Stay Tuned

Boston owner John Henry has just said in an e-mail to the Boston media that the Red Sox have been outbid by a rival and "will not be a factor" in the Mark Teixeira free agent derby!

Apparently, the Red Sox have been informed of higher bids by rivals than they expected. Are they suspicious of the numbers? Are the Bosox calling agent Scott Boras bluff? Is this a late entry by the Yankees? Have the Angels seriously increasing their bid after Raul Ibanez, their No. 1 free agent alternative to Teixeira, signed with them Phils? The Orioles? Or...

Tomorrow should be interesting.

Quick guess - if he's going to LAA or NYY, they have an agreement before dawn, Sunday. Otherwise, the Nats have the best offer.

Cashman tells the NY Post "it's not us" They believe it's Ana. I say Angelos.

He's always made the most sense for LAA. They don't have an internal plan B for 1st other than Kendry Morales, and they need a 1st baseman who plays the field so Vladi can DH when his knees tell him to. Dunn, Giambi are not Scoscia players.

Get it done Lerner's! They can change their fan base's opinion of them, for the better, and prove there is a real Major League Franchise in the District.

The Yankees just spent a $.25 billion on pitching and still need to buy ManRam...not sure even they'd be in this game.
