Word On The Game:
It’s not too often you hear a player in any sport admit that he is probably overpaid. Market determines value, and whatever you were able to get at the time of free agency is what you were worth. At least, in my opinion. But enter New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, who recently opened [...]

Mark Teixeira says he is “overpaid.”
Usually when athletes talk about their contracts, they are complaining about how small it is, but, apparently, Mark Teixeira is not one of those athletes. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, he stated that he is overpaid and “on the backside of [his] career.” Talk about honesty.

Throughout 2012 and early 2013, the New York Yankees saw big

strong and push the team into the postseason once again. Here is an update on
the injuries to the Yankee’s key players.

“I have no problem with anybody in New York, any fan, saying you’re overpaid. Because I am,” Teixeira said. “We all are.”
Derek Jeter has taken to the field for a full week now and even hit in the batting cage Monday for the first time since breaking his ankle last October.
