Red Sox Meet With Mark Teixeira In Las Vegas

With time running out on making deals with Mark Teixeira, the Red Sox traveled to the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas to try and come to an agreement for 2009. The Angels have just offered the top offensive first baseman an 8 year, at least $160 million contract and the Red Sox don’t want to let him go. He would be an excellent addition to the team and Theo will do everything he can to “get his man”….again. Not only will he help with defense, but he is a highly trained offensive weapon that will fill the empty 3-4 slot that opened up when Manny left. I mean, Lowell is amazing and so is Youk, but I think that they could rewrite the lineup and make a solid 7-8 players.

Teixeira, 28, has hit at least 30 homers and driven in at least 105 runs in each of the past five seasons. After being acquired from the Braves before the trading deadline this past season, Teixeira hit .358 with 13 homers and 43 RBIs in 54 games with the Angels.

In my opinion, the only way that the Sox will have a chance at winning the division and the World Series is with Mark Teixeira in the lineup. I know the Sox can do it without him, but I think it will be so much easier with him.
