According to Ken Rosenthal, in his latest Inside Dish, the Blue Jays offered Vernon Wells to the Rangers in exchange for Mark Teixeira.
This rumor has been kicking around for a while, but this is the first time that I've seen anyone say that the Jays had that deal on the table.
Last fall, I analyzed a possible Teixeira for Wells deal, and said, don't do it.
After this season, with Teixeira clearly having outperformed Wells, I am even more strongly against such a deal.
No Teixeira for Wells trade. No Teixeira trades, period.
