    Teix

    Mark Teixeira Rumors: Wednesday By Tim Dierkes [December 10 at 1:14pm CST]
    1:14pm: Yahoo's Jose Mota (new guy) says the Nationals made an offer to Tex for at least seven years and $150MM.

    12:44pm: SI.com's Jon Heyman talked to two high-ranking baseball officials who predicted Teixeira will get a $200MM deal. Heyman believes two teams already bid $160MM.

    11:17am: Dave Sheinin of the Washington Post has heard the Yankees' signing of C.C. Sabathia takes them out of the running for Tex. The Angels, Red Sox, Nationals, and Orioles will battle for the Boras client.

    9:36am: Mike DiGiovanna of the L.A. Times talks about Mark Teixeira:

    The Boston Red Sox have emerged as front-runners, and the Washington Nationals, who appear willing to offer eight years and $160 million, could make the most lucrative bid. The Baltimore Orioles are in hot pursuit, the Yankees are lurking, and the Angels are growing more concerned that Teixeira might be slipping away, primarily because they'd like to sign him for six or seven years, not the eight or nine it might take.

    Those numbers are absolutely insane...

    10 years, that would absolutely hamstring any franchise not named the Yankees/Red Sox/Dodgers/Cubs (depending on who buys them)...

    They have the money to spend with nice young cheap guys in Zimmerman/Dukes/Milledege.

    They also have a new stadium to fill, runs and home runs can fill it.

    But they need to spend the money on pitching, and we all know that's now what Bowden spends on.

    Hopefully though these crazy deals open up a 2nd round of acceptable free agents for us.
