“It was then learned that Teixeira had favored the Yankees all along and according to sources he conveyed that to them this week.”
“Anyway, just one more note on Mark Teixeira: I’ve heard from a reliable source that the first baseman turned down about $5 million more from the Nationals to sign with the Yankees. And the Nats would have gone higher, but were never given the chance. Teixeira jumped at Brian Cashman’s first offer. I guess it wasn’t ALL about the money…”
Anyone who thinks that this dickhead wasn’t all about the money because he turned down an extra 625,000 a year from the worst team in the league is mentally retarded to a spectacular degree.
Mark Teixeira wanted to sign with the Yankees all along. FOR SURE NOT.
