The Rangers Should Be Glad Teixieria Is Gone

The Rangers should be glad they moved All Star Mark Teixieria to the Atlanta Braves last summer.

Now the Braves players, management, and fans can wonder all day long if he will re-sign.

Somebody would be smart to yell on every Peachtree Street that Tex is gone. He and agent Scott Boras will be test the free agent market this summer and he will go to the highest bidder around.

Just listen to one of his teammates. Chipper Jones told this to the Atlanta Jounal-Constitution, “Tex is one of those guys who’s a die-hard Boras lover,” Jones said, “and that tells me what I need to know right there.

“I’m not going to say there’s no chance [they re-sign him], but he stands behind his guy [Boras], and his guy gets top dollar. And I doubt we’ll be able to offer top dollar.”

Finally, the Texas Rangers look smart. Tex is playing the good folks in Atlanta.
