With the news that the Los Angeles Angels have pulled their offer to free agent first baseman Mark Teixeira off of the table, as reported by MLB.com writer Lyle Spencer in an article entitled, "Angels pull out of Teixeira chase", and confirmed by several sources, including ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick, and LA Times' writer Mike DiGiovanna. (ed. note - "I bet LA says they're still in it tomorrow...")...and with the Washington Nationals still on an ever-dwindling list of teams that have offers on the table for Teixeira, along with the Red Sox, Orioles and Yankees...Should the Nationals just scream, "10-years/$200M!" and send everyone else packing???
Why should Mark Teixeira sign with Washington? State your case...in a FANPOST, which i'll promote to the front page, or here in the Comments section...Who knows, maybe he'll google himself and find someone's argument for the District persuasive...Or, alternately, let the Nationals know why they should back out now before it's too late...There are only three days left until Teixeira's own stated deadline for signing...Let him know what you think!
