Monday Recap

Sorry for the delay on posts everyone, I was traveling all day yesterday with my family and the airline lost our bags. Talk about a poor start to a vacation:
  • David Wright, Chipper Jones, Brian McCann, and Mark DeRosa all accepted WBC Team USA invites, joining Grady Sizemore and Ryan Braun on the team thus far.
  • The Yankees and Chien-Ming Wang have agreed to a one year deal worth five million dollars. Wang went 8-2 with a 4.07 ERA, and if he can prove that he can stay healthy, he will probably get a long term deal next offseason. Wang, who isn't eligible for free agency until 2011, is 54-20 with a 3.79 ERA in 97 appearances (95 starts).
  • is reporting that the Nationals have upped their offer to Mark Teixeira. The deal, which reportedly holds options that could take it to ten years, is worth somewhere betweeen 178-184 million dollars for eight years. It's risky, but signing Teixeira bodes well for future negotiations, not to mention a leader in their young clubhouse. Many, including myself, expect Boras to go back to the Angels or Red Sox to get a deal done.
