Happy Tex Day!

The Mark Teixeira Hot Stove is on overdrive today. Tim Dierkes of MLBTradeRumors has links to all of today’s Mark Teixeira news and rumors.

What it boils down to is that teams including the Red Sox have made offers to Mark Teixeira capping at around 8 years and $180 million. So it seems that within the next week Teixeira will be cutting the list down to a couple of teams to let them make their final offers before he decides.
With the Angels signing Juan Rivera, they now have 5 outfielders, making any further outfielder signings unlikely. They still need to add a bat to protect Vladimir Guerrero, so if they do not end up signing Teixeira, the Angels may have to look into trading for a first baseman or they can promote Kendry Morales to play first  base. I still believe this will come down to the Angels or the Mets. Either way, it’ll be interesting to follow this story and see how it effects the Mets.
