Not really, at least in the case of Teix. All I've heard indicates the NTC, not the money, was the dealbreaker re: BOS. Plus, there's two huge assumptions:
1) The Yankees don't go even higher
2) In case of a tie, he chooses Boston.
The Sox pretty much have never, and will never, win a direct auction with NYY for a player both really want. No-one named Steinbrenner would let it happen.
