Mark Teixeira reported to camp two days after Alex Rodriguez but people aren’t badmouthing him because of it. They’re badmouthing him instead, because he claims he feels healthy this year. God forbid a dude claims to be healthy though I kind of see the naysayers’ point of view: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me a few times, I’m obviously a gullible moron.
Anyway, Tex had a lot to say this morning and thanks to the tireless efforts of the beat writers down in Tampa, we don’t have to wait for entire articles to be written. We have their tweets!
I singled out Bryan Hoch of MLB.com for today:
Teixeira said he feels strong & his goals are still 30 homers & 100 RBIs. Acknowledged that he felt like “garbage” for most of last season.

Mark Teixeira said he won’t give in and become a slap hitter to beat the shift.
