Then:

John Hart opened negotiations with Teixeira after the All-Star break, but Boras was only prepared to accept a three-year deal taking the slugger through his arbitration years or a 10-year contract.

Now:
All-Star first baseman Mark Teixeira (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=6788) agreed to a $15.4 million, two-year contract Tuesday with the Texas Rangers (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/clubhouse?team=tex), avoiding salary arbitration this year and next.

Pretty good deal for the Rangers. Lock him in at non-exorbitant rates, and still provide flexibility to either deal him with an arb year left or resign him.

Awesome deal for the Rangers. Texiera is 26 and was a .300 40 HR 140 RBI man in '05. He'll be a stud for years to come and is a class guy on top of it. I'm only surprised they did try to lock him in longer in a Konerko type of deal.
