01-07-2009 02:15 PM #137"The Nationals and the Orioles were definitely up there, a chance to play close to home," said Teixeira, a Maryland native. "But in the end when it came down to my goals as a ballplayer, wanting to be a world champion and multiple world champion, the Yankees were just so far and above everybody in that realm, with a chance to win every year.
"I wish the best for the Nationals and Orioles, but the Yankees were a better fit for me."
Why that money grubbing, selfish, self-centered illegitmate so-and-so....
Oh, winning was a factor too

Oh my Dear God. Tex is a bad guy because he signed with the Yankees? I justy don't get the anger toward him for this signing. And why be revolted at someone as a kid from Baltimore that liked the Yankees? I am sorry but this is silly to me. I am a Texan. Born in Dallas. I don't liekthe Cowboys, the Rangers. I was a and still am a Colt fan and an Orioles fan. Just because someone is from your city doesn't mean he has to cheer for the home team or when he becomes a Major Leaguer have to play for the home team. I am not trying to make anyone pissed or hurt their feelings. I just don't understasnd the feelings of some on htis board.

There is no logic to sports in general. Why does ANYONE care whether or not a team of out of town players, who happen to wear their city's logo on it, and whom the fan has ZERO impact on, does well or not?
In general, even being a fan of sports teams is illogical. To all of a sudden question why people are upset is silly. Technically, even rooting for a team is silly, by definition. We're FANS.
Plus, generally, the people who take things like this the hardest are the ones who get the most out of successes. That is true in life in general. You can either have extreme high and extreme lows, or flatline.

Lex, that is totally uncalled for. I would not wish that on anyone. Good gosh how old are you anyway?

Just as he has the right to do as he chooses, I retain the right to wish him nothing but bad professionally and personally.

Because of the $$ involved, I never really believed Teixeria was going to sign with the Orioles. And I don't begrudge the fact that he was able to fulfill a childhood fantasy....we should all be so blessed. However, I will wish him the same fate that befell Mike Mussina....never to win a World Series ring. And that while wearing his pinstripes, he will watch the Orioles rise to dominance again. That would be justice enough for me.

I think we should sign Mattingly as our 1B coach, and when we play the MFY's get him to make fun of Tex and taunt him. "I'm your favorite player huh, I wish you wouldn't say that and embarass me."

I for one do believe folks simply need to go ahead and have a good cathartic , get it ALL out of your system now like a bad stomach flu, and then move on. Losing any more energy over that guy is something I for one don't care to do. He doesn't deserve our valuable time chatting about him any longer.

Orioles. Now he's saying it was always a dream to play for the Yankees.
He's two-faced, talks out of both sides of his mouth and seems to say what he thinks people want to hear. If he worked in the cubicle next to me, I would have little respect for him. It's not which team he roots for, it's the lack of integrity that bothers me.
