There is nothing released or confirmed yet but as I said before I trust a source that I have come across in the past and they said he will be a Baltimore Oriole. He will be at the biggest Ravens game of the year tomorrow along with the owner Peter Angelos and a physical is scheduled Monday to seal the deal.

Also Tex's father says he wants to be an Oriole.

They are giving 9-10 yrs at $20 per a season.

Also Papi no hard feelings it was all in good fun. I have nothing against the Red Sox but I do dislike the MFY.

As an Oriole fan I am very excited for the future of this franchise after 11 years of losing. A franchise with such a proud history and tradition was fading away but now the hometown kid will begin a new era of Baltimore Orioles baseball. Thank you Peter Angelos for getting this done.

Even though nothing is confirmed or announced I can confidently say this is done when mark takes the physical tomorrow. The "WOW" offer was put on the table by Angelos.

Wait...I don't see anything of this. And I also see that he is not attending the Ravens game today. Is this just a feeling or did you hear this somewhere that it's a sure thing?

I know of a person who has connections in the FO of the Orioles. He has been saying all along that the Orioles were bringing Tex home and to not pay attention to the media. Last night I talked to him and he said Tex will be at the Steelers/Ravens game tomorrow as a guest of Peters and a physical would was set up for Monday. He said that PA made his "Wow"offer, which was needed, since every other team in the running was at around 8/160.

He told me last night Tex is an Oriole even though nothing will be reported to early next week. He said that they have moved onto looking at pitching... Sheets in particular.

Teixeira Rumor Shot Down

11:20am: An Orioles official says Teixeira is not attending today's Ravens game as a guest of Angelos.

 

Now this is what I found after it being said that he was going, he has decided not to.

I guess we will find out by game time... I doubt Orioles would want to let this information out of the bag.

Both ESPN and CSN have reported Tex will be there. While other smaller media outlets are saying otherwise.

I am optimistic with what I heard.

Its not about next year or the year after. Its about in 3 years when the core group of players will all be at the top of their game. It will be similar to the Rays this past season. Don't sleep on the O's in 3 years with Tex in a uniform.

"Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti is a big O's fan, so expect him to try and help out Angelos in courting the first baseman."

Sparky you are right about Tex not being a guest of Angelos. Steve Bisciotti is having Tex as a guest and Angelos will also be attending.

This is a great day for Oriole fans everywhere. The franchise if finally going to take a huge step in the right direction to be coming respectable and relevant in baseball. In a few years the team will have a great young core to compete in the ultra competitive AL East.

One of my buddies who works on gameday for the Ravens said he saw Teixeira arrive but knew nothing about Angelos.

Any proof that he was there? I bet if he were there it would have been a pretty big thing and they would have to have a link of something related to that. It's kinda big news.

Talked to my buddy again and he said he saw him and that 3 other people he knows who work up in the box suites saw him. He never said he saw Angelos, however.

I got ahead of myself when I heard Teixeira was going to be at the Ravens game with Pete....

Tex was there but Pete was not.... I knew it seemed too good to be true but the Os are still in it just as much as anyone else.

just joking.

HA - friggin - HA........you my friend are a joke! How dare you post MARK TEXEIRA is an Oriole, when he wasnt?! Your a friggin joke, and I swear I will not post towards you in the future. You probably got countless O's fans hopes up for no reason. Because you wanted to feel like an ED WERDER and report the 'big' news? Good job ignoring me, you clearly feel like an behind.
