Teixeira To The O’s & Everyone Else: It’s Not Me, It’s You

After seeing this, do YOU really think he wanted to go anywhere else but New York? He completely used every other team as bait to get a deal, and he’d rather be a piece of with a team – Boston or New York, rather than a focal point of a lineup – everyone else. He may have wanted to be a Yankee, and is saying the right things — almost too perfectly — but, he wants to win and the paycheck is definitely worthwhile.

I also think it’s nice he listened to his wife, and she helped him come to a decision. Again, this does not make it any easier to stomach that he bypassed everyone else for a chance to wear pinstripes.
