Red Sox owner JohnMa Henry apparently emailed several media outlets in Boston Thursday night and stated that the Red Sox are out of the running for Mark Teixeira. Apparently the Sox front office met with Scott Boras on Thursday night and after hearing the offers from other teams decided that they are not going to increase their offer.
This news comes a couple of hours after it looked like the Red Sox had the inside track to signing him. I am betting that unless he takes a lower offer Teixeira will be back with Anaheim next season. The Orioles and Nationals are also involved in this sweepstakes.
