Teixeira Watch: Part VII- Owner Says Sox Are Out

Recommended Posts

Red Sox owner John Henry wrote Thursday that he doesn't expect the team to "be a factor" in the final bidding for Mark Teixeira.

"We met with Mr. Teixeira and were very much impressed with him," Henry said. "After hearing about his other offers, however, it seems clear that we are not going to be a factor." Negotiating ploy or the end of Boston's flirtation? We're guessing agent Scott Boras was still presenting the Red Sox with some unrealistic expectations during the face-to-face negotiations Thursday. It's pretty clear that the Red Sox won't go beyond eight years in a deal for the first baseman.

So I guess they are just in Texas talking about how they aren't going to sign him.

Yeah, and remember when the Yankees let A-Rod go. He'll be a Red Sox.

The Yankees didn't let A-Rod go...A-Rod left, and then went back. This is interesting, but doesn't mean the Sox are out.

This is starting to get ridiculous with all these conflicting reports. Either way, this particular one is great news so I'm just going to go to bed on that note.
