So Tex is set to announce his destination today. I’d break down the odds like this:
50% – Red Sox
They’ve got the money, they clearly want Tex, and they offer a chance to win.
40% – Nationals
Reportedly offered $185 million+. Money talks when it comes to Boras clients.
10% – Yankees
I never would have thought this just a week or two ago. But it seems like the Yankees may have put Cameron on the backburner to keep money free in case Tex offers them a good deal, like Beltran did in ’05. Still, very unlikely, but I wouldn’t be shocked if they came up with a creative deal if NY is where Tex wants to be. And who knows – his idol growing up was Donny Baseball.
