Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira had a cortisone injection in his left wrist, a day after hurting it while trying to make a diving stop at first base. The Yankees said an MRI on Tuesday at New York-Presbyterian Hospital showed no structural damage. Doctors diagnosed Teixeira with inflammation, and the team said Teixeira will be evaluated again on Friday. Teixeira was lifted after the seventh inning of the Yankees' 5-4 loss to Baltimore on Monday night, their eighth defeat in 11 games. He said he hurt the wrist in his third at-bat against Boston on Sunday. Still, he felt as if he could play before he tweaked the injury in the field.

Josh Beckett – July 23, 2008 The heart-stopping days where watching a Yankees-Red Soxgame was about the best thing since sliced bread now seem like a distant memory even though the rivalry has only been stale for a few years. Long gone are those infamous bench-clearing brawls, and 5-hour games that you never wanted to end. Maybe it is not the end to the greatest rivalry in sports...
