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.
