Upon further review

So it seems my previous post was too negative for some people. So I will try and appease those who are sensitive. Here is my revised state of the lineup Mark Teixeira will have around him:

Players who are injured but will gut through it (not with the help of their cousin): Alex Rodriguez.

Aging players coming off injuries but are of strong character: Jorge Posada, Hideki Matsui.

He’s Derek Jeter, the great Yankee: Derek Jeter.

Players in a contract year who still want to make money because they have a lot of kids and like doing fun stuff: Johnny Damon.

Young, hungry players: Brett Gardner, Melky Cabrera.

Players coming off their worst season, so they are sure to improve: Robinson Cano.

Players who can play many positions and get on base a lot: Nick Swisher.

Players who probably aren’t as good as last season’s stats would indicate. But maybe not! Xavier Nady.

There, hopefully that works.
