Gammons trying to cause trouble
Peter Gammons appeared on WEEI today, and Boston.com's Chad Finn transcribed his comments, mainly about Mark Teixeira. Here is something that really sticks in my craw:
It's going to be interesting. As you probably remember, there was a lot of testiness between Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira when they played in Texas together . . . and I don't think Alex really cares about communicating with other players, we know [that] from Derek Jeter. Also, we haven't really seen Teixeira in a situation where the expectations are really that high, and he's going to have to deal with them in New York. It will be very interesting to see how it goes with the Yankees.
No, it's not going to be interesting because no one is going to care.
"As you probably remember..."
I don't remember this. Do you? Rodriguez and Teixeira were teammates for one season five years ago when Teixeira was a 23-year-old rookie.
I don't buy that this will be an issue, nor should you. The Red Sox correspondent for ESPN is trying to stir up the sediment.
