Rosenthal with a Teixeira update

For what it is worth...

Mark Teixeira update: One rival general manager believes the Dodgers and Braves are the front-runners; Don Welke and A.J. Preller, two of the top assistants to Rangers general manager Jon Daniels, previously worked in the Dodgers' organization, and know their farm system well.

The Dodgers' interest is somewhat curious; rookie first baseman James Loney is batting .362 and has hit eight home runs in his first 229 at-bats. Teixeira, though, would offer more power short-term.
