YES Network: Exit Interview with Mark Teixeira

Lou DiPietro did a slew of exit interviews with the players of the New York Yankees after their Wild Card lost to the Houston Astros and every night we've been linking to them. The links brings more views to DiPietro, a friend of the blog, and the YES Network while also bringing our readers something you may have missed. We hope you appreciate and enjoy these as we are coming close to an end. CLICK HERE to see the entire article or see below for a short sample from the YES Network's end-of-season interview with Mark Teixeira. Enjoy and thank you.

The New York Yankees' 2015 season ended at Yankee Stadium Tuesday night, thanks to a 3-0 loss to the Houston Astros in the American League Wild Card Game.

Following the game, many Yankees players, coaches, and officials were in a reflective mood, beginning both the look back on this year and the look ahead to 2016 - so much so that the YESNetwork.com team was able to conduct a series of "exit interviews" on the subjects.

Here now is the brief exit interview with a Yankees slugger who was unable to play in the Wild Card Game, first baseman Mark Teixeira.

Q. Can you give us an update on how your fractured leg is healing?

TEIXEIRA: It's going well, and I'll be 100 percent in about a month. Unfortunately, that's the bad timing of it. It's not a terrible injury, but it's a break, so you have to let it heal; it's not one of those things you can play through. I tried to, and I couldn't. I'll be fine in a month or so, but it's tough.

Q. How much might extra rest help in the future?

TEIXEIRA: Rest helps. It's a part of recovery, and it's a part of performance.

Q. How tough was it to not be able to be on the field (in the Wild Card Game)?

TEIXEIRA: It's pretty miserable, but there's nothing you can do, it's just really bad timing. If you're going to have a freak injury, you'd like it to be at the beginning of the season so you can be with your guys at the end, but that's life. Unfortunately, this happened in the wrong time of the year.
