Yesterday Buster Olney wrote in his blog the winners and losers of the Mark Teixeira signing.

Winners: Mark Teixeira, New York Yankees, Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals (because they wouldn’t have to devote 20-25% of their payroll to one player), and baseball fans.

Losers: Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Angels, labor peace, Manny Ramirez, Jason Varitek, and Andy Pettitte, the New York Mets, the Toronto Blue Jays, Milwaukee Brewers, Baltimore Orioles, and New York Yankees.

Sure, there are some contradictions here (like the Orioles and Yankees) but once you read Olney’s blog, you’ll understand why.
