Yankees out of the Teixeira bidding?
According to Sean McAdams of the Boston Herald, the Yankees are not interested in signing Mark Teixeira, settling for Nick Swisher as a cheaper alternative at first base, and they will be focusing their free agent money on pitchers Sabathia, Burnett and Lowe. I don’t believe this for a minute. Yes, they want to sign Sabathia and probably one other front line pitcher, but the Yankees are not going to just let Teixeira sign with their arch rivals. Ain’t gonna happen.
The Sox may well win the bidding to sign Teixeira, but it won’t be without a fight and without a lot of bucks. But my money is still with the Yankees.
