Mark Teixeira leaning towards Os?

According to ESPN's Karl Ravech, Mark Teixeira is leaning towards accepting the Orioles' offer. For the video, click here.

OK. Let me just step back and look at this. Who is our source? Karl Ravech! He's the essentially the play-by-play guy for Baseball Tonight! This isn't Peter Gammons or Tim Kurkjian or even, God help us, Steve Phillips. This is a Karl Ravech! He's not a guy "in the know." He's the guy that goes, "Hey, what do you think about this? What do you think about that?" He isn't paid to have an opinion by ESPN because that's not his job. Why is this even making news?

I'll just end the rant there. I think you can all see where I'm coming from with this...
