Tonight on MLB.com
Prop up the big tent, because the Alex Rodriguez three-ring circus is in town. The Yankees are pledging to support A-Rod’s 1:30 p.m. press conference in numbers — Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera, CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Mark Teixeira are all planning to be there, as will Joe Girardi and Brian Cashman.
Teixeira’s thoughts only on baseball
OK, I had no idea what ‘Max & Ruby’ are, but a few of the beat writers with young children exchanged knowing glances. That’s what Mark Teixeira has had on his television screen instead of continuing coverage of the A-Rod fiasco. Of more interest to Yankees fans – Tex says he’s going to get off to a quick start and have a huge year.
