Mark Teixeira Rumors: Tuesday

10:09pm: Angels owner Arte Moreno to Jon Heyman: "Teixeira’s my guy.  There are obviously other people we like. But he’s our main target."  Currently, the Angels aren’t planning to set a deadline when they make an offer to Tex.

9:11pm: Brian Sabean ruled out Teixeira for the Giants.

4:27pm: Ken Rosenthal says the Angels are "beginning to recognize they will not be the high bidder" for Tex.  Some of Rosenthal’s sources believe the Nationals will come in the highest.

3:48pm: Yahoo’s Tim Brown says Angels owner Arte Moreno "has been deeply involved in negotiations with Scott Boras regarding Teixeira, as well as with agent Greg Genske on Sabathia."  Brown says the Angels may be willing to give Tex seven years if necessary.  The Halos are weighing the idea of going after Manny Ramirez if they miss out on Tex and C.C.

11:39am: Jon Heyman says the Red Sox have been one of Tex’s most aggressive pursuers.

1:47am: Yahoo’s Gordon Edes surveyed several club officials, and they believe the Red Sox will sign Mark Teixeira.  They have the money and a strong relationship with Scott Boras.  However, the Yankees are heavily interested even if they’ve yet to make an offer.  And the Angels are said to be "desperate" to retain Tex.  As far as we know, no one’s made an offer.  Edes sees the Orioles and Nationals on the periphery, though both clubs are serious about Teixeira.
