The Yanks swooped in at the last second to sign Teixeira before the 2009 season, but age is starting to make this move look bad.
Since joining the team, Tex has put up some solid offensive numbers, but his average has sharply declined from where it was earlier in his career.
Last season, Teixeira had one of his worst years during his tenure in the MLB as he only played in 123 games and had career lows in both homers and RBI.
Defense has been Tex's biggest positive since joining the Yanks. The gold glove winner has been stellar at first base and has saved a ton of runs thanks to his greatness in the field.
But even Teixeira has said he isn't worth the money the Yanks are paying him and at this point, I have to agree. He's still under contract for four more seasons, but there's no doubt it won't be a smooth ride.
