The Mark Teixeira derby appears to have come down to the Red Sox and the Nationals, and while Teixeira doesn't appear to have decided yet, the teams are expecting a decision today, according to sources.
The Nationals are believed to be offering more money, as well as a chance for Teixeira to play near his native Maryland. The Red Sox offer a much better chance to win.
The Yankees had been involved with Teixeira, but barring a last-minute change, they don't appear to be a finalist. The same goes for the Orioles, as well as the Angels, who made public their withdrawal from the negotiations on Sunday.
