Mark Teixeira disputes a call with home plate umpire Ed Rapuano during Game 4 of the ALDS at Boston's Fenway Park in October.

Various news organizations are reporting that Mark Teixeira is about to sign a long-term deal with the New York Yankees. Jon Heyman of SI.com is reporting they have agreed on an eight-year deal worth $180 million.

The Angels had offered an eight-year deal worth about $160 million, but took that off the table when they got no specific counteroffers from Teixeira's agent, Scott Boras.
