Teixeira May Get A Gigantic Contract Next Season
According to a source from a team who is involved in negotiations, the
Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles “are coming in hot” on
Teixeira, with the Nationals apparently willing to offer the slugger a
10-year deal for more than $20 million a year and the Orioles willing
to go nine years for at least $20 million a year.
Yes. You did read correctly. The Nationals are willing to pay Teixeira more than $20 million a year for 10 years while the Orioles are willing to play Tex $20 million for 9 years. That is just insane! Teixeira is from Maryland so the Orioles would be closer to home, however Washington D.C. isn’t that far away.
Just the fact that Teixeira can walk away with at least $180 million is ludicrous. Whatever happens, he’ll be one extremely rich man. Oh, and I still don’t think that the Nationals will be THAT much better if they do sign Teixeira.
This is going to definitely be an interesting topic to follow.
