The California Anaheim LA Angels have removed themselves from the Mark Teixeira bidding war, leaving the Red Sox, whose eight year $170 million offer is STILL on the table, the Washington Nationals (8 years at $160 million) and the Baltimore Orioles (8 years at $150 million). That leaves only one winning team with an offer on the table...the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees are lurking in the Twilight Zone, somewhere between fantasy and reality...who knows what they will do. Angels owner Arte Moreno thought agent Scott Boras(s) was using his team to drive up Teixeira's price. Boras(s) is JUST ASS. Here's what Angels team spokesman Tim Mead had to say. It's short and sweet...

"We have indeed withdrawn our offer and ceased negotiations," Mead said in an e-mail.

Peter here. I guess he got right to the point. Ok, I've said this before and I'll say it again. Barring the mysterious Yankees, the only winning team with a standing monetary offer to Teixeira are the Red Sox. This should be simple, but I'm sure there are more twists and turns looming before Christmas Day arrives. Mark wants to make his decision by then. Keep your fingers crossed...whatever Boston owner John Henry said a couple days ago, the Red Sox are still VERY in it. More now than ever.
