While the source declined to discuss specifics, there are strong indications that the Red Sox will announce that they have landed the highly-coveted slugger ...
It is still unclear how much the Red Sox offered Teixeira, but there were reports last night that the Nationals had boosted their bid in a last-ditch effort to sign him.
MASN's Roch Kubatko reported last night that Nationals might have upgraded their offer to the first baseman to an eight-year deal worth between $178 and $184 million.
ESPN's Peter Gammons and Buster Olney, stated earlier today that a Teixeira decision is "seemingly imminent".
