Tex: “We have everything we need to win”

Color Mark Teixeira unsurprised that the Yankees didn’t pull off a flashy trade before today’s 4 p.m. deadline. As far as he’s concerned, the Bombers did all their best shopping over the winter.

“I don’t think anyone can complain about bringing in CC (Sabathia), A.J. (Burnett) and myself,” Teixeira said. “Guys are stepping up for us this year. Joba (Chamberlain) is stepping up, Phil (Hughes) is stepping up. We’ve got everything we need here.”

Teixeira said that he wasn’t looking as July 31 as a day when the Yankees would change much. They did pick up an old buddy in former Rangers teammate Jerry Hairston, Jr., whom Teixeira described as a “great guy” who would help them with his versatility.

“I said from the very beginning of the season, we have everything we need to win here,” Teixeira said. “I think we’re showing that. When we play our best baseball, we’re going to win. We just have to keep working hard and play well the next two months.”

Fact is the Yankees don’t have it in them to take this all the way. I’ve been a yankee follower since the 60’s and I know the character of a team that’s able to win when it counts and score runners. They fail much to often and Giradi won’t be manager long with the mistakes he makes. When they lose this year he will be gone and all I can say is don’t let the door….

I agree with Tex to a certain degree! The off season changes the Yanks made were great. I feel as if the Yanks should look at getting an all star caliber catcher. Posada is and has always been a half season catcher. He grounds into sooo many double plays, and it seems like most of the time during crucial situations. The usual back ups have either been no bodies or washed up! Victor Martinez was a big pick up for the Red Sox, the Yanks should have tried to get him!
