Red Sox Meet With Teixeira
BOSTON (AP) Red Sox officials are meeting with free agent first baseeman Mark Teixeira Thursday, WBZ's Dan Roche learned. However, the two sides aren't close to getting a deal done. Boston hopes to lure the 28-year-old switch-hitter with an offer and the numbers out there Thursday were somewhere in the neighborhood of 8-years and 180-million dollars. However, nothing is expected to be "conclusive" following their meeting and that the two sides are apart on the money terms. Although, these things fluctuate and perhaps a deal could get done in the next few days.
