Yanks and Angels talking Teixeira

According to Jon Heyman, the Yankees and Angels are back to discussing Mark Teixeira on the heels of Boston dropping out of the race. Here are the Yankee-centric details:

Yankees people were thought on Friday to be debating the merits of Teixeira vs. Manny Ramirez, Boras’ other available slugging superstar, and there may be a split vote in the pinstripe hierarchy. While they all love Teixiera’s all-around play and character, Ramirez may be favored by some for his unmatched clutch hitting prowess, unique ability to tweak the rival Red Sox and to draw attention and dollars, but especially because he’d require a shorter term (perhaps three or four years as opposed to at least eight for Teixeira).

Some have suggested the Yankees are merely monitoring the Teixeira situation since he’s Boston’s top priority, and there’s no concrete evidence they’ve outbid the Red Sox yet. Although, the sides were believed to be discussing parameters on Friday, and the Yankees also know that if they steal Teixeira from Boston they’ve clinched the winter in a landslide.
Knowing how the Yankees operate, nothing should surprise me. However, this news is somewhat surprising to me. I think when all is settled, Teixeira won't be in New York. I doubt they'll give out an eight-year deal nearing or surpassing $200 million.

Stay tuned.

Thanks man,

And how annoying was it to add that third column? I did the same thing and it took me hours.

It took me a very long time. I had to have done it at least 10 times. Sometimes I'd put in code and the colors would be messed up and I couldn't change them. Other times, my layout page was messed up. I finally found a new site at like midnight and got it to work.
