Angels to hold off on Tex...for now

According to MLBtraderumors, the Angels will NOT make a formal offer to free agent 1st baseman Mark Teixeira during their exclusive negotiating period. This goes against their usual philosophy of getting things done quickly but they know it's useless since Scott Boras wants his clients to test the market no matter what. By not making a formal offer, Boras will not be able to take it to other clubs and drive up the price.

 

What do you guys think? I honestly never thought about it that way but now that it's been brought to my attention, I think it's a good move. That way when the media showcases the Tex war between Boston and New York, Ninja Reagins can chill at Del Taco and sign Tex while chowing down on a burrito or something.

 

Tex: "Wha???? 10 years for only 20 million??? Are you kidding me?"

 

Ninja: "Oops, sorry. I spilled some sauce over that second zero."

 

Tex: "OOOOOOOH. 10 years, 200 mill. Now THAT'S more like it!"
