"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."
Is this a bluff? If not, the question is who outbid the sox? It seems to me that it would point more away from the O's and nats and probably more towards the halos and maybe even the Yanks, but i'm just guessing on that. Regardless, it sounds (please let it be true) like he wont be a red sock, which makes me warm inside. Merry xmas everyone!
