The door is wide open for Greg Bird

The New York Yankees called up left-handed slugging prospect Greg Bird last month for a few games to give him a taste of the big leagues. He had reached AAA and was hitting well. The Yankees wanted to give him some games at the big league level to see what he was truly capable of. It was supposed to be a short stay. That quickly changed when veteran first baseman Mark Teixeira fouled...

Yankees’ Mark Teixeira done for the year with fractured right leg

Mark Teixeira will miss the remainder of the year after an MRI revealed a shin fracture in his troublesome right leg, the...

Greg Bird is a talented impressionist

When Greg Bird was summoned from the minor leagues by the New York Yankees the goal wasn’t for him to replace Mark Teixeira. That would have been foolish. When Bird made his MLB debut on August 13th, Teixeira was performing like a fringe MVP candidate in the midst of his best season with the bat since 2008. Instead, Bird’s directive when he arrived was simply to give the team...

JABO: Trying to Make an MVP Case for Mark Teixeira

Unless he changes his name to Mike Trout and has some pretty impressive plastic surgery, there’s not a strong argument to be made for Mark Teixeira as the AL MVP this season. Teixeira currently leads the Yankees in FanGraphs WAR at 3.3 but he’s only 14th in WAR among AL batters, behind the likes of Logan Forsythe, Kevin Kiermaier, and, well, 11 others. Throw in pitchers and there...

Yankees’ Teixeira goes ballistic, then rips third base coach Espada

New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira has always seemed like a mind-mannered guy. He obviously has a good sense of humor, based on his talk show parody from last season in which he was the host. But Monday night, Teixeira showed a side of him that he might want to rethink for the future.While on second base in the eighth inning, Chase Headley looped a single to center field...
