THE SCHMUCK STOPS HERE

The sense I'm getting is that Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno will be in the hunt to sign free agent Mark Teixeira, but only to a point. Moreno paid just $180 million to buy his team from Disney five years ago, so it's hard to imagine him agreeing to spend a similar amount to sign one player. If the Angels aren't willing to go the distance, there still will be plenty of interested teams to drive the price through the roof. The Orioles probably will be among them, but there has been little indication Peter Angelos would be willing spend up to $20 million per year for a single player.
