    Excellent
    Although it is a little scary that the 4 biggest contracts in all of baseball will be in the same uniform come opening day.

    This move had to be made though. We needed a hitter to complement A-Rod as he was going to be left alone in that line up.

    It also most likely ends the Manny to the Yankees rumors and i was kind of getting used to the idea of having Manny in the Bronx.

    So what happens when they don't win the world series?

    Do they spend another 180 million?


    This **** is getting ridiculous. These players are NOT worth the money they are getting. Why the **** is a GOOD player, not a great player, getting 180 million?

    No player should get that money. I don't care if he hits 200 hrs a year. That is too much money, especially since the economy is in such **** right now.

    Teixeira is easily a top 5 player in MLB.. best first basemen in the mlb tuner.. has been for years.. CC is the pitcher in baseball, and burnett is a 15-20 game winner

    Teixera is NOT the best 1B. Pujols is. No player is worth 20 plus mill IMO. MLB needs a salary cap. Although this type of Yankee behavior is a reality check for the other big market franchises that are reluctant to spend. Then Yanks have the resources to do it but so do the Sox, Cybs and Mets. They are just to afraid to pull the trigger.

    Imagine of Bill Gates owned a sports team...

    And on the best 1st baseman thought;

    There are still a number of players that are better.

    Albert Pujols(Best)
    Carlos Delgado
    Derek Lee
    Miguel Cabrera
    Prince Fielder
    Justin Morneau

    According to MLB.com he is 1B. Must switched him when he went to Det. I dunno, cuz I thought the same thing.

    Delgado and Cabrera both had better statistical numbers than Texeira. In baseball, stats ARE an indication of ability.

    texiera is better defensivly then both of them, although they are better POWER hitters but Tex is the better all round player he gets the job done on both sides....offense he could hit the homer or drive in the run with a single, and on defense he makes gold glove caliber D every night
