Is Mark Teixeira going to take A-Rod's place as the designated Yankee scapegoat?

About a month ago, I said to Squawker Jon that I thought Mark Teixeira would be the new target of the Yankees' ire in the future, basically becoming the new Alex Rodriguez when it comes to being the team's designated Yankee scapegoat.  After all, Tex not only has a ridiculous contract, like Alex Rodriguez, and he also is no longer in his prime, and he is injured all of the...

Bud wanted the whole world watching the games, so the sore loser owners - i.e., George - were expected to squelch competing news bulletins...

What's wrong with the Yankees? The fault, dear Brutis, is not in our stars, but in our masthead.

Relard. That should be a word, as in..."The Yankee front office, they're a bunch of relards.""Relarding" would describe the annual churning of professional sports executives, who bounce among teams like hookers on laps in Sons of Anarchy. When somebody jumps, he (yeah, it's generally a him) is quickly replaced by a drinking buddy from the last GM convention...

Cashman: A-Rod could play first base in 2015

Rodriguez figured to slide right into a vacant third base hole, but he might not be limited to the hot corner. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told reporters...
