Newsday's Kat O'Brien has some interesting details of how the Teixeira negotiations went down, according to a source involved in them. First Boras wanted 10 years (with the 9th and 10th years being options), then he said they'd take 8 at $192 million. But, the Yankees held firm to their 8 year, $180 million offer - the offer that was accepted, 20 minutes after Boras told them that the free agent first baseman would likely be headed to the Red Sox.
