Red Sox Make Offer To Mark Teixeira

Per LA Times:

That market appears to be developing slowly but surely. The Boston Red Sox are believed to have made an offer for Teixeira, and the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals have indicated they have serious interest.


The source didn’t go into details about Teixeira’s contract demands, but said the switch-hitting first baseman is looking for a contract that is better than Miguel Cabrera’s deal. The Tigers first baseman signed an eight-year, $153.3 million contract during Spring Training last season. The source pointed out that Teixeira is a complete player and is in better shape than Cabrera.
