what's most puzzling is that texeria ain't worth anything close to what he's gonna get. mark texeria? a 200 million dollar guy? really? he wouldn't even be in my top 10 guys in the league, and he's a 200 million dollar guy? recession ftw

Looks like the Yankees just got Teixeira.

Eight years, more than $170 million, giving the Yankees the four highest paid players in baseball.

Disgusting. I can't wait for them to miss the playoffs again.

Not sure what happened here. Probably one of the following:

1. Teixeira just didn't like Boston;
2. Boston were really stubborn about not including a no-trade clause or an extra $20MM;
3. Cashman just thoroughly pwned the rest of MLB by lying low while the whole Boston-Baltimore-Washington-LAA tug-of-war was going on, then swooped in for the kill.

On paper, I'd have to say that this puts NYY in the AL East lead for 2009.

I'd have to say that the no-trade clause was probably a huge factor, because the money wasn't that much of a difference.

And Boras wasn't too happy with John Henry's email last week, so he probably had extra incentive to stick it to him.

Of all the Yankee signings, this one I like best.

I sort of agree that it's partly disgusting, but, I find the Padres situation a lot more disgusting, frankly.

Not sure if this makes the Yanks the favorite or not, but they sure as hell are more loaded than last season, doubly so if Wang/Joba/AJ can pitch all season.

So the Yankees have now spent $423.5 million this offseason.

Apparently the luxury tax hit of another $27 million wasn't a big deal.

The Yanks' signing of Teixeira is disgustingly amazing.

I'll giggle if they don't make the playoffs again.
