    8 years for 180 million. I think they just wanted him away from the Yankees and gave Boras the king's ransom. 8 years at 20+ million for any player is ridiculous. I don't care if it's Albert Pujols. Plus, did they really need him?

    It's not official yet, but it sounds like they are closing in on the deal. Other teams like the Orioles and Nationals placed slightly smaller offers, and they never increased their offers. Looks like the Red Sox will acquire him. Hopefully he is successful there.

    Good thing it wasn't official. Turns out the Yankees made an 8 year 210 million dollar deal to Boras. Now there's a 10 year 250 million dollar deal on the table. This is f***ing ridiculous.

    Yup. Right after I posted, I went to watch some SportsCenter. Next thing you know, breaking news! Red Sox owner says they are not planning on signing Texeira. They didn't know other teams were going to bid for him as well.

    Ridiculous stuff. The Yankees don't learn do they? They just keep signing big names, losing, signing big names, losing, etc. They are filthy rich and they suck at using there money. If there was an even salary cap around the league like there should be, the Yankees would always be the worst team.

    How in the world do you like both the Twins and the Red Sox? That's like me liking the White Sox and the Yankees.

    They're not gonna sign him it looks like. Yankees have a better chance at him right now than Boston.
