Mark Teixeira and Michael Young remained very close friends even after Teixeira was traded from the Rangers to the Braves, and Teixeira said earlier this week that he texted Young during the division series to say that he hoped that the two friends would have the chance to meet in the ALCS.
When Young was asked about that, he said, “It’s going to be fun. I love Tex. Can’t say enough great things about him. Once the game starts (though) … it’s Rangers-Yankees.”
What did the two say to each other in their texts? Young grinned.
“He invited himself to shack up at my house,” Young said. “I told him I had no room.”
