After seeing the video of Ravech on espn.com, I'm not 100% confident. He only said that the hometown tie "neutralizes" the desire to win immediately, not that it's the kicker. And he said that every time a team offers a big contract, the other four step up and compete with it. He also said the contract could apparently go as high as 28 mil a season? I might have heard it wrong, and he meant that that in the span of the contract it might go that high. But if it's 28 mil a year... damn.

I definitely still think it's up in the air, though I really, really hope I'm wrong.

Found this funny quote on the Sun boards

"Kevin Youkillis went to a UCONN football game vs. Cinncinati. He is as popular in East Hartford Conn as Tex would be in Baltimore and he only had stadium security when he went down to the sideline. And he was easily recognized. I don't think Tex would require a police escort."

Hopefully this isn't someone who is from this board because I found this quote absurd and absolutely hilarious. Youkilis in Conn. on Teixeria's level in Baltimore?! REALLY?! :rofl:

You guys here forgot to mention this. Tex is a good friend of Matt Wieters. Maybe MW has helped convince Tex to come home. I sure hope to God he has. "Come home Mark". I consider Tex family. He went to Mt. St. Joe. Same high school as myself. We are a family at the mount. Mount men. I have wanted this signing for years and if he signs, I will make the trip from NY to Camden Yards opening day. I'll have tears of pure joy in my eyes. "Git er done".

Agreed...this is pretty good news' date=' but let's not get overly excited yet...I think we have been down this path before of hearing something that was not set in stone.

Sorry to pee in your Cheerios...but here's to hoping!!!!![/quote']

We're all going to look pretty silly when this guy signs with Chelsea. :laughlol:
