Was he even wearing a veil to begin with?For three days straight I've been seeing the headlines about how the Yankees are planning to "unveil" Teixeira in some sort of news conference and have been wondering why, exactly, this is big news. We know who he is. We basically know about his contract. What is there really to unveil? It's an empty exercise borne of New York media competition more than anything else.
I'm not the only one who thinks this, as Jason at IIATMS has a near certain to be correct prediction of what we'll hear when Teixeira is, um, unveiled.

Typically bland, nothing really newsy to report. Teix supposedly consulted his wife who told him she wanted him to be a Yankee.
And Randy Levine skeeves me out.

Honestly, this is more about the organization trumpeting its own success than anything specific to the NYC newspapers. Isn’t this the same venue in which Mike Hampton declared that the local schools in Denver were the reason he picked the Rockies?
