Pros and Cons of Orioles signing Teixeira

Steve Melewski of MASN Online discusses the pros and cons of the Baltimore Orioles signing Mark Teixeira.

The Pros include an improved lineup, increase in ticket sales, and having a “Baltimore kid leading the Baltimore Orioles.” The Cons include the inability to then address pitching needs, the injury factor, and team chemistry.

Like the Nationals, I don’t think the Orioles are going to sign Teixeira. Although, there’s the home town thing, Teixeira will go to the team that offers the most money. It’s very doubtful that the Orioles would make an offer large enough that will convince Teixeira to sign on a team that may not win for a long time.
