TEIXEIRA UPDATE - 12/23/08 12:33 am EST - Did The Nationals Just Offer More Money To Mark Teixeira???

18

The title says it all. MLB.com's Lyle Spencer's article entitled, "Nationals may have upped Teixeira offer" reports that DC might have raised its initial offer of 8-years/$160M to somewhere in the neighborhood of 8-years/$178-$184M, ($22-$23M per?)...with Mr. Spencer also writing that: "What's more, there are indications that the Nationals might be talked into going to nine or even 10 years." What is it going to mean to the DC franchise if Teixeira turns down what is by far the biggest offer? Can Teixeira turn it down? If Washington's actually upped their offer, will anyone else join them? What's it gonna take? And when is it gonna happen already?...
