Sources have confirmed to Sons of Simmons, that the Boston Red Sox have agreed in principle to an eight-year deal with first basemen Mark Teixeira.
FYI - I’ve never heard of the Sons of Simmons before tonight. Neither the Globe or Herald is reporting a deal, nor any other MSM outlet, as far as I know. I’m just telling the facts. Like when every columnist takes the easy way out, which could be the correct one - I don’t know, by vilifying Scott Boras for not accepting the Sox offer of arbitration to Varitek. But no one reports that Tek is going through a divorce and may need additional cash or that the Captain made the final decision during his last round with the Sox, as far as we know. I’m just saying…well…you know…Happy Festivus! My airing of grievances and other random rumblings should be out before the new year. It is sad that I haven’t celebrated Festivus for a number of years now.
