More Boras(s)...

This is from the Tuesday Los Angeles Times...

Boras: I've got offers for Teixeira

"While the Angels have not made an offer to Mark Teixeira, his agent says other teams have.
"We've received a number of offers," agent Scott Boras said.
Boras would not say which teams had extended offers, or even how many. He characterized the offers as bids Teixeira had the right to accept, as opposed to informal discussions about contract parameters without firm offers attached. He declined to set a timetable for Teixeira's decision.
The Angels identified Teixeira as their top off-season priority, but they have not made a bid because the franchise is unwilling to offer the requested 10 years. It is uncertain whether any of the bids Boras says he has are for 10 years. No team has confirmed making an offer to Teixeira, although the RED SOX, Orioles and Nationals are expected to pursue him.
Teixiera rejected an eight-year, $140-million offer from the Texas Rangers in 2007, according to Rangers owner Tom Hicks."

Peter here...big bucks will be on the table, that's for sure. I hope they'll be John Henry bucks because Teixeira will make the Red Sox lineup one of the most feared in all of baseball...again.
