Nationals reportedly up the ante for Teixeira

Another day, another Teixeira update.

The Washington Nationals “have sweetened their proposal to Teixeira, offering him an eight-year deal worth $178-184 million” according to a report by the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) website. MASN’s Roch Kubatko has been told the Nationals are willing to go nine years and there’s been talk of a 10-year offer.

Meanwhile, Yankees co-chairman Hal Steinbrenner told Newsday that the Yankees have no offers on the table to either Teixeira or Manny Ramirez.
