Can’t say I’m not happy about it! I think the Yankees will put up quite a fight against the Rangers today, but they’ve got CC pitching. Not that he was all that impressive in his last start, but the Yankees did manage a late-inning rally for the win.
With Teixeira out, it takes a lot of power and consistency away from the Yankees offense, plus he’s a gold glove first baseman.
I’m anxious to see what this game brings. I just don’t think they Yankees are just going to roll over and take a loss, the Rangers will have to fight for it. Despite lackluster pitching and Teixeira’s injury, the Yankees have the mentality of a championship team so they’ll keep fighting.
