Teixeira back in Yankees lineup

080310teixeira.jpgMark Teixeira caught a flight from New York this morning, saying goodbye to his wife Leigh and their newborn 8 lb., 7 oz. baby boy William. He might have been at Columbia Presbyterian, but Teixeira said he kept one eye on the Yankees.

“I was at the hospital the whole time, but luckily they had the YES Network,” Teixeira said. “I got to watch the games, which was great. Obviously I’ve missed games in my career, but anytime you’re not even in the stadium; I’ve been in the training room with ice on my ankle or whatever, watching the game on TV, but it’s not very often that you’re at home watching the team.” 
Teixeira said there were no second thoughts in his mind about where he needed to be, with Joe Girardi and Brian Cashman both on board.
“It’s automatic,” Teixeira said. “I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I missed my child’s birth or if anything happened. There’s no question in my mind. I talked with Joe and Cash beforehand and said this was the deal, this is what’s going to happen, and if it happens to be when we’re on the road, I may need to miss a couple of games. They were obviously great with it.”

from Earlier post..
We need Andy back healthy… Thames has started to come around, he’s getting some key hits. (he still Ks too much) Javy needs to go to a NL club the sooner the better.. I’d like to see CC become more dominant….. Jeter picked the wrong time to have a rough season, It could cost him millions. He certainly don’t deserve a huge contract. He’s not the same clutch player anymore….
Coming back last night was great, I really gave up on them, So many missed opportunities…Wood is looking good..I sure hope Long has solved the problem with Grandy, he has really been a waste.. Arod needs to get HOT! he’s been down too long… Is Tex coming back tonight, I hope so. I can’t understand his missing an important series as Texas, As far as I know his wife had no problems medically. It wasn’t their first. I hope he come back all fired up and fire up the rest of the team….
“GO YANKEES!”
