Mark Teixeira is a premier defensive first baseman who hits for power and does a stellar job getting on base. In the words of Buster Olney, he is the perfect fit for the Yanks. While numerous Yankee bloggers have made the case for Teixeira, yesterday, SG at Replacement Level Yankee Weblog ran the numbers and showed that a seven-year deal for Teixeira would be ideal. His 2015 projections have Teixeira at .268/.365/.483 in 2015 at the end of a tenure in the Bronx that projects to 201 HR with a .280/.378/.508 line. I’d take that in a heartbeat for $22 million a year.
