Mark Teixeira "definitely a possibility" for Sunday

After spending the entire offseason worried about his wrist and how it would affect his swing, Mark Teixeira couldn't have figured that a hamstring would prevent him from playing this year.

What version of Mark Teixeira can the Yankees tolerate?

Mark Teixeira can return to the Yankees as early as Sunday, but return as what? He has fallen – physically and statistically – but to where? The offensive identity of Teixeira lingers as a key question to this season.

Who's on first? For now, Kelly Killzit. And when he gets hurt...?

In the last two seasons, Yankee fans have seen some memorable lineups trotted out to big horse yardy. Remember the famed "Murderers Row 2013?" (Pictured right.) Moreover, we have seen ancient outfielders play positions worthy of a sandlot game. Last year, Vernon Wells played third. Sunday, Carlos Beltran played first, for the first time ever. He was replacing Francisco...

Yankees: Did the shoe just drop?

Teixeira shouldn’t be in middle of Yankees order anymore

Mark Teixeira just might be the latest Wally Pipp. No, Kelly Johnson is not about to become the Yankees’ regular first baseman and there is not a Lou Gehrig type waiting in reserve. Teixeira will start when he returns from his hamstring injury. But he might just be Pipp-ed out of his familiar lineup placement. With Teixeira on the DL, Joe Girardi has used a lineup that begins...
