Looks like the Red Sox, who were thought to be the front runners in the Mark Texiera sweepstakes, are out of the running.
I was really hoping that we’d pick him up for 1st base, trade Lowell, and move Youk to 3rd, and somehow ditch Lugo and have Lowrie play short. Yeah, well, that doesn’t look like it’s happening. I have a feeling he’s either going to go to the Nationals or the Oroiles, or maybe stay in LA with the Halos. I’m officially going to put a hit out on him if he goes to the Yankees.
