Mark Teixeira: The Definition Of Insanity

Because of the night Mark Teixeira had, the injuries (Nova, Robertson, Ibanez) and the illness (Rapada) that surfaced before the end of last night's game in Baltimore were a little bit easier to take. Teixeira went 2-4 with a homerun, leading the Yankees to an 8-5 victory over (and, I'm getting sick of saying this) the first place Orioles.

Teixeira hopes that what he did last night will get him going. He hopes? Hope isn't going to get it done, unfortunately. Hope will not help him conquer the shift. He needs to do something about it, and not what he has been doing. What he has been doing is making a fool out of himself. He looks like an idiot, constantly hitting into the shift, game after game after game.

I botched this saying on the last podcast, but it describes Mark Teixeira perfectly: the definition of insanity- doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. I'm shocked that Teixeira's picture isn't next to the word in the dictionary, because he is a living, breathing example of it.

Has he even admitted there is a problem? Maybe he needs to do that. Say it, Mark. Say "My name is Mark, and I'm a rally killer."
