""There's more to Mark Teixeira than just baseball. While promoting his work with the National Foundation for Cancer Research/Coppertone’s “Help Strike Out Sun Damage” program, the Yankee first baseman confessed he’s a big fan of musical plays. “My favorite musical of all time is ‘Les Miserables,’” he said. “But ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and ‘Miss Saigon’ are great too.""

This reminds me of last week when it was announced that Sammy Sosa was on the list of 104 CONFIDENTIAL MLB players who tested positive for Steroids in 2003. It reminds me of it because once again it brings about the question "HOW IS THIS NEWS???" I guess because the coupled facts of he is a New York Yankee and the East Coast Biased writers(Baseball Tonight included) makes it news.

 I don't know, I just figure their are more pressing matters in baseball, such as the 2009 All-Star Game, or The Economy, or even The Nationals(?). Seriously get on with your lives this is not news.
