  • The Orioles have Teixeira exactly where they want him. He’ll come crawling back for less.
    Meanwhile, Olney thinks it’s down to three–the Nationals, Angels and Sox. He says the Yanks haven’t made an offer.

  • Salesman: “I have a handkerchief once used by Al Bumbry when he had the flu. It’s unwashed, and I’m asking five dollars.”
    Orioles: “Seven fifty!”
    Salesman: “Eight dollars.”
    Orioles: “A bag of pistachios!”
    Salesman: “Eight dollars.”
    Orioles: “TEN DOLLARS!”
    Salesman: “Done.”

  • mmm…pistachios…one of my many weaknesses…i’d sign for a bag of the turkish kind any day…boras would hate me as a client…i still think the yanks’ll jump into this…despite dave, rob, ‘a’, and woo’s rantings, he’s the best hitter out there, who just so happens to be a 1b…
