Gone For YearIt's too bad we don't have the capacity to feel sorry for The Evil Ones—because this would be a great time for empathy. First, their GM is engaged in an expletive-deleted TWITTER war with their re-habbing third baseman (Alex Rodriguez) and now their high-priced first baseman (Mark Teixeira) is out for the rest of 2013. Teixeira confirmed that he will be undergoing another wrist surgery (torn sheath tendon) that will sideline him for 4-5 months. To be honest, this is another example of why the World Baseball Classic is a disaster for MLB. Teixeira initially hurt his wrist preparing for the bogus tournament. In any event, it looks like the Empire will have to battle the rest of the way without two of their highest-priced 'superstars'.
