Red Sox pull the plug on Teixeira

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Dec 19, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

After meeting with Scott Boras this evening in Dallas, Red Sox owner John Henry issued this e-mail:

“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.”

That leaves the Angels, Orioles and Nationals. I’ll stick with my prediction of a month ago and say he signs with the Angels.

But … Teixeira is a Boras True Believer. Like A-Rod, he’ll follow the money if that is what he is told to do. So you can’t discount the East Coast teams if they are willing to come up with the scratch.
