Teixeira cheaper than originally thought

By

Perhaps this means they still have enough money left to pursue free agent pitcher Jake Peavy? (h/t to reader John Kilfeather for the screen cap)

    ugh, I was gonna quote a few things from this, but the whole thing is completely idiotic. If only FJM were still around… (if anyone wants to do it up–yes you TSJC, be my guest)

      Some people just dont get it. It amazing how these people are allowed to write for papers

      I like how this article’s entire argument against the Yankees’ spending habits is:

      “It just smells bad.”

      Riveting, hard-hitting journalism there.

    MY CHRISTMAS LIST

    1. What they guys at Fox sports are smoking.

    • Arin

      Fox is teh suXor

    That also means he’s getting $387 million less than Dustin Pedroia. Rough month for the fact checkers at the sports websites.

    i just read schilling’s view on the tex deal.. first time i havent hate curt after reading something he’s written

    • Barry

      I was going to say something similar to this and add in that he’s not a very intelligent writer.

  • al

    the old crusty sports caster on my local am station couldnt pronounce his name and said it was an 8yr 280m deal..

    YES NOW WE CAN GO GET MANNY! thank god he took a yankee discount

    I always love it when the internet exposes the retardness of major media outlets like fox or espn.

  • Nady Nation

    Any ideas on Sterling’s HR call for Teix? How about “an Exclamation Mark from Teixeira?” I think that one fits the bill in terms of the cheesiness and name-incorportating factors.

      A Texellent homerun!!!

      • Ryan S.

        Or as an alternate, A Texeriffic homer!

        How about “A Tex-as sized bomb!”

        “Nice Shootin’, Tex!”

  • Ballgame

    He Tex-turized the ball!

  • Kevin G.

    Mike, it’s spelled “Peavey” not “Peavy”, duh.

    rosenthal got smoked on this story. yeah, heyman did boras’ bidding for a few weeks, reporting every bit of news they leaked to him. but i’m pretty sure they rewarded him with a 10 minute head start on everybody – including olney.

    meanwhile, peter gammons is breaking that the red sox front office holiday party has a strict “no business at the dinner table” policy

    “He just sent the fans in the right-field stands a Tex message”

      Well done.

    • Un-Named Yankee Source

      Good one!

    • Alan

      This sounds like something that’d come out of Michael Kay’s mouth.

  • Un-Named Yankee Source

    So, ….what other changes are coming? Any predictions?

  • Ken

    What number will Tex wear? I would guess Giambi’s #25.

    • Un-Named Yankee Source

      With all the numbers that are being retired by the Yanks, they are going to need to start 3 digit uniforms. How many HOF can one team have!

  • Un-Named Yankee Source

    Hey Yankee fans, …Now playing First, …..”The Big Texy”

  • Ken

    What’s will be Sterling’s home run nick name for Tex?

  • Ken

    I am late with my post. Its funny some one else was thinking the same thing.

  • Mark Teixeira

    I am thinking I’ll wear number 25. I wish I could have number 23 but I know who that number belongs to.
