I would have bet my life savings that the Yankees would swoop in and get Teixeira if the Red Sox didn't get him. Not so much that the Yankees want Teixeira so much as they love to tweek Boston.

So they have the audacity to ask for $$$ to build the new toilet, then throw around $400 million in the offseason?

The Evil Empire is back. They signed #s 1,2, and 4 from ESPN's free agent rankings. The Sox will have to respond, either through a free agent signing (Lowe??) or trading for an impact bat. Maybe they'll just sign all the remaining free agents?

I'm guessing they'll stand pat with the exception of bringing Varitek back or whatever.

ESPN - Los Angeles Angels not interested in Manny Ramirez
he's not going to boston. Does manny really have any other choice now than the dodgers?
Do the yankees just throw caution to the wind and go crazy with him too?

why not? if you can spend 423.5 million on 3 guys what's another 100 million?

If Manny's going to accept anyone's short term deal, it'll be New York.

That would be hilarious and tragic at the same time.
