Reports: Teixeira Signs With Boston — WTF?
Update: OR NOT???
Henry's words: "We met with Mr. Teixeira and were very much impressed with him. After hearing about his other offers, however, it seems clear that we are not going to be a factor."Kids, I'm on CST right now, and I'm going to bed. If the Angels do or don't sign Teix (or the Red Sox do, etc.), I can find out in the morning. Gah.
Earlier tonight, multiple news outlets reported the Red Sox had traveled to Texas to meet with Teixeira and his agent, Scott Boras, in the hopes of trying to finalize a deal. WCVB-TV Channel 5 reported that the Red Sox had offered Teixeira an eight-year deal worth $184 million (an average of $23 million per season).
