The "Little Engine that Could" will be pushing hard for Mark Texiera this year. Scott Boras has to love this. It looks like things may be set up for a Yankees-Red Sox bidding war. This makes me even more sure Texiera will get a bigger contract then he`s worth.
Now, the Red Sox already have fierce team leader, Kevin Youkillis, at first base so if Texiera were signed he would have to move to third base. This would mean Mike Lowell would be traded as well. Remember way back when Boston fans were talking about how they wanted Lowell over the expensive star, A-Rod? I guess things have changed.
