CHEAPSKATE NATS PLAY CHICKEN WITH THE BIG BOYS. 8 YEAR, $160 DEAL ON THE TABLE FOR TEX.
No Hometown Discount here -- it's the Hometown Markup!
Meanwhile, Scott Boras is licking his chops, and Ted Lerner is praying Mark Teixeira says thanks, but no thanks (heck, the guy can barely afford to pay the rent, remember?).
Nice PR move though, Mr. Lerner!
But who needs Tex? Da Meat Hook is ready for Spring Training!
Meanwhile...we'll continue to ignore all talk of Manny Ramirez coming to Washington. Thank you.
