If you haven’t watched the batting stance guy do last year’s Red Sox, you’re missing out.
His Youkilis impression totally made me lose it at work.

The Red Sox finally signed somebody, but it wasn’t the big name most fans were waiting for. Still, they got two solid players in Brad Penny and Josh Bard for a small investment. Outside of targeted big-name signings, this is the way the Red Sox work, taking chances on injured pitchers and lesser-known free agents.

Well, in case you missed it, it is now official – Mark Teixeira will be a New York Yankee for the next eight years. Just when I was beginning to think it was possible for us to win. GM Brian Cashman played this one close to the vest, and swooped in to land their third major free agent prize in two weeks. The Red Sox were standing firm on their offer of 8 years, $168M, and New York trumped them with a $180M offer over the same term. Teixeira’s new deal comes with full no-trade protection.

Rocco Baldelli, a talented right-handed hitting outfielder from Rhode Island, would make an excellent addition as a fourth outfielder, but the Red Sox have hesitated to sign him, as he was diagnosed with a rare mitochondrial disorder which may severely limit his playing time. Now it seems that the diagnosis is not as bad as initially thought, and Baldelli is drawing interest from several teams. He is an athletic defender who can play all three outfield spots and hit with some power. I project him to hit roughly .262/.303/.462 in 2009.

The Red Sox tendered an official offer to Jason Varitek yesterday, according to agent Scott Boras, but Nick Cafardo is now disputing that. Boston’s offer is purportedly for two years and an unknown dollar amount. It’s beginning to look like Varitek will re-sign in Boston after all.

Theo Epstein and his cohort have arrived in Las Vegas, and are taking part in the GM Winter Meetings for the next three days. Is there something big in the works? All the signs point to a pretty big free agent signing, and I suspect it will be a young starting pitcher.
