We left you folks just a half hour ago and already we're forced to throw the dutch oven back on the fire: looks like the Yankees are on the verge of signing a one hundred and eighty million dollar deal with Mark Teixeira to have the young fella come play first base for the next eight years, as per Jon Heyman of SI.com. Add this on to CC Sabathia and A.J. Burnett and that's almost $425 million of new contracts for the Bronx Bombers this offseason.
Watch out, American League East fans. Texy can hit and he can glove with the best of 'em. He'll actually make Jeter, A-Rod and Cano just a little bit better by digging their errant throws out of the dirt. Now back to your regularly scheduled Holiday Questions.
