I don't care about the money. The Yankees have the money, the Mets have the money.
Eight years of Teixiera means the Yankees are tied up at the corners for the next eight years.
The captain will be 35 this season. Even Ripken went to third. Derek can't go there, A-Rod is there. Would they ever flip? Derek can't go to first until he turns 43. Will the captain wind up playing out the string at second base....or with a team like the Royals?
It happens to everyone, even The Babe got to finish with the Boston Braves.
It looks like the Yankees really want to win this year to christen the new stadium. How long until Manny comes to town?
