Boras: For Tex, It Just Came Down To Winning

Perhaps there's little sense in rehashing an old lost cause -- that is, unless Scott Boras gives you a belated call back to talk about it. When I spoke briefly with Boras today, the agent was decidedly eager to compliment...

At The Finish Line

It's 2 o'clock. Still no word from the Teixeira camp, but it seems like it's come down to a decision between the Red Sox and Nationals... or perhaps the Yankees, if you believe the latest reports. A decision could come...
