The Increasingly Indispensable Mark Teixeira
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It was obvious Mark Teixeira‘s importance to the Yankees increased as soon as they made it clear they were willfully downgrading their offense. New York signed Teixeira to that fat eight-year contract — fourth largest contract in baseball history when it was signed — assuming he would anchor the middle of their lineup for years to come, but he simply hasn’t lived up to those expectations. Teixeira was great in 2009 but has faded in recent years. - See more at: http://riveraveblues.com/2013/02/the-increasingly-indispensable-mark-teixeira-82895/#sthash.4D6wVVgv.dpuf
