That Braves' offer is in no way overpaying, even if they only get prospects for him in the fall of 08.
Please don't get me wrong here, I like Teixeira and all.... but he plays in a bandbox in Arlington. His 3 year splits show a 60 point OPS advantage at home over the road. Like the author of the article said though, if this rumor is true, why havent the Rangers already accepted? Its a very good offer and likely to be the best they get. I think the Braves are overpaying a little bit. Not a whole lot, but a little bit? Yes.
