Mark Teixeira

Many people have stated that Mark Teixeira will without a doubt leave Atlanta after this season. This is not true. He may or may not be playing in a Braves uniform in '09, but we certaintly have a shot. The Braves have over 25$ million dollars coming off their payroll after this season. Tex is already being paid 12 million a year. Do you really think that the Braves can't sign Teixeira? They might choose not to, but if they want him, they can have him. Heck, we can just put Mike Hampton's salary directly into Tex's. The would give him about 25$ million dollars over the lenth of the contract. I don't know whether we will choose to pony up the big bucks, but we certaintly have that option.

My first post

This is my first blog entry. I don't really have anything to say, I just figured I should make an entry. Don't expect me to post very often. I will attempt to post every day, but I probably won't.  I will follow up whenever I feel like it.
