You're right, that's true, that deal was great for the Rangers. I would think one major difference, however, between Teixeira and Sale is that Sale is locked up under team control until 2019 and the Rangers were more or less forced to deal Teixeira because they knew they would lose him in 1-2 years so better to get something than nothing and they ended up with a big haul that worked out well for them.

The "What If" Cabrera to the Sox deal still haunts me.
