It’s a new world for Mark Teixeira given the state of the position players around him …

Players who are injured: Alex Rodriguez.

Aging players coming off injuries: Jorge Posada, Hideki Matsui.

Aging players in decline: Derek Jeter, Johnny Damon.

Young, unproven players: Brett Gardner, Melky Cabrera.

Players coming off their worst season: Robinson Cano.

Players without a position: Nick Swisher.

Players who probably aren’t as good as last season’s stats would indicate: Xavier Nady.

If everything goes well, the Yankees could have an imposing lineup. If not, yeesh. But a lot falls on the back of Teixeira now. Buster Olney broke it down well today on if you have a subscription. In essence, Teixeira is the only sure thing they have offensively right now.
