Sent him to California...errr...I mean Anaheim...er LA...er...to the Angels...

Quote:
The Los Angeles Angels pulled off a blockbuster deal Tuesday to acquire Teixeira from the fading Braves, bolstering a team that already has the best record in baseball but won’t be satisfied with anything less than a World Series title.

“Our goal is to win a world championship,” Angels general manager Tony Reagins said. “The team is playing well at this point, but being able to add a player like Mark Teixeira just makes us that much better.”

Los Angeles sent first baseman Casey Kotchman and minor league pitcher Steve Marek to the Braves, who raised the white flag on this season after a rash of key injuries.

It feels so nice Atlanta is struggling...it makes October 1992 not hurt as much

Totally bro. I've not stopped hating the Braves since then.

Unless they manage to extend Tex, this is a bad deal for LAA.

I'd agree, unless he puts them over the top and is the difference between winning a world series and not.
