Teixeira Not Too Interested In The Angels?
During Thursday's ESPN telecast of the Georgia Tech-Miami game in Atlanta, Teixeira told sideline reporter Erin Andrews he wants a baseball team for Christmas.
“I don't want to put a timetable on it, but Christmas morning, I want to know where I'm going to be for the next couple of years,” he said. “So hopefully, by Christmas, it will be done.”
Knowing agent Scott Boras' affinity for the big stage, I'm guessing Teixeira's headline-grabbing signing will be announced during baseball's winter meetings Dec. 8-11 in Las Vegas. What better place for the rich to get richer?
But I don't think it will be with the Angels. If he were going to re-sign in Anaheim, I think it already would have happened. Just a gut feeling. Even the people I talk to in the organization don't seem optimistic.
Fishing for a story not there, I tthink.
