Where do the Yankees put Greg Bird?

The Yankees are in a tough position. They have three good players and two spots to put them. This season, Mark Teixeira bounced back to hit .255 with 31 home runs in just 111 games with exceptional defense. He is clearly a player that needs to be starting for the Yankees at first base. Alex Rodriguez also had a comeback season, hitting .250/.356/.486 with 33 home runs. There shouldn’t...

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...

WATCH: Mark Teixeira rips fan who bumped into him

With the Yankees trailing 2-0 in the top of the ninth, Teixeira tried to reach into the stands to make a play on a foul ball. He was unable to come up...

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...

New York Yankees: Mark Teixeira in 2015

The New York Yankees’ 2014 season wasn’t only rough on the team’s pitchers, but position players as well. First baseman Mark Teixeira had his fair share of injuries, resulting in one of his worst MLB seasons to date. It started in March 2013 for the two-time All Star when he suffered a torn tendon sheath. It wasn’t until 53 games into the regular season that Teixeira was...
