In the race to sign Mark Teixeira, the Yankees are turning up the heat.

The Yankees are in deep discussions with Teixeira, in what is now an attempt to beat out the rival Red Sox for Teixeira's services. The Teixeira sweepstakes is considered to be a three-team battle with the Nationals still involved. However, the Yankees' talks have turned serious in recent hours, as the team appears to be stepping up its attempts to lure the free-agent slugger to New York.

The Red Sox remain hopeful to sign Teixeira, who hit .308 with 33 home runs and 121 RBIs in 2008, as a middle-of-the order hitter to replace Manny Ramirez.
