Mark Teixeira May Miss Rest of 2016 Season w/ Injury

Well this is not what you want, now is it?

The New York Yankees announced late last night that Mark Teixeira had a cartilage tear in his right knee and may miss the remainder of the 2016 season with the injury. The Yankees are hoping to avoid that and are in the process of rehabbing the knee with the hopes of their first baseman coming back at some point this season.

Chris Parmelee has been called up to take Teixeira's roster space and to give the Yankees a true first base option. Now what?

    1. Unknown I agree 100% with you and have said as much that Boston (Dave Dombrowski) has the balls to make those moves. The elf apparently is either a yes man or doesn't posses a pair of nuts

    2. I am inclined to agree but the problem in this case is what kids do we have to play at first base? We have none.

      Welcome to the site by the way.

    3. Unknown, do you mean take a page from Boston who (by the way) took that page from the Yankees when George was in charge? It ain't gona happen with Hal in charge.
      Stick around and have some fun!

    4. I said it during the winter when the elf shit his pants that we needed a suitable replacement at first when Bird went down. All you elf fans look at what you have at first base this year? I'm happy at least that they are giving Refsynder a shot. Girardi fails to understand the mantra of everyone in the game of baseball...if you can hit we will find a place for you. Unfortunately the Binder doesn't understand you need to score runs to win games and guys like Castro and Headley and Gardner aren't really tearing it up so leave the kid alone and give him 300 at bats. In fact Reed I'm so confident that Refsynder will statistically beat out Castro, Didi and Headley and Gardner if this happens in almost all statistical categories, except for HR. He will have a higher BA than every single one of them if he gets 300 at bats. When Tex comes back let RR play almost all of the game and put Tex in the game in the 8th inning for D. Thats all he is good for anyway. Hell Reed you and Burch might be able to hit a .180 between you two.

    5. Sorry Hans, I ended up with; 11,780-AB/3,990-Hits/ .339-Avg. and
      1,080 games/ 348-saves/2.06 Era.
      Right now I couldn't hit a softball in slow pitch.
      I guess that makes you right, damn, that hurt me to say! LOL

  3. Good part is I'm sure a tex bounce back is what the front office was waiting on for a "playoff push". The bad part, I was expecting him to be playing better and potentially a great addition for a team in the playoff hunt in regards to trading... Because if it was tex from last year (when he was healthy lol), it would be an upgrade for anybody.

  4. I have seen enough of selfish Tex that I hope he is shut down for the remainder of the year. We can beat a dead horse to death on why he is selfish and why its time to part ways whether by injury or just sent to the pines. Either way its time to move on from this selfish player

    1. Wait until the Yankees offer him a qualifying offer after the season. :)

    2. If that happens it will show you all the lunacy in Hal and the Elf. I think the more Tex is injured the less likely he will get a qualifying offer. I don't think Hal is that stupid with his money that he will give someone like 15 mill a season for being on the DL. Even I don't think the Coupon Clipper would do that
