Teixeira trying to get back on track

I’m heading for the stadium in about five minutes. For now, here’s Mark Teixeira’s postgame interview from yesterday. As you’re well aware, Teixeira has typically struggled in the month of April and so far it’s the same old story this season.

“I don’t know why it is, but I can’t change anything that’s happened the first eight games,” he said. “I’m going to go out (Thursday), get here early and try to get some hits.”

Teixeira is 3-for-31, with all three hits coming in one game.

“Whatever struggles come early on, it turns around and turns around really well,” he said. “I’m just going to stick with my plan and try to go out there and do the job.”

Three quick links…

Eric Hinske and Melky Cabrera got their World Series rings yesterday. Turns out, Jerry Hairston Jr. picked them up and brought them to his old teammates.

Former Yankees reliever Jose Veras has been designated for assignment by the Marlins. Veras made the team out of spring training but was brutal through four outings.

An army medic came to the rescue of a fan who was choking at Yankees Stadium yesterday. John Stone rushed to provide assistance behind home plate, then had his seat upgraded as a thank you.
