Richard Durrett with an article chock full o' Mark Teixeira quotes...
The part that jumps out at me:
Teixeira shared his thoughts on the Rangers' philosophy for building a major league team.
"We're a big market team that's playing like a small market team," Teixeira said. "Unless you hit with some young players and pitchers, it's tough to play that way. I know the business better than anybody. I go to the union meetings and I keep up with what's going on in the off-season. I know this is a business, but when the Yankees go out and get All-Stars every year, and the Red Sox go out and get All-Stars every year, it shows you they want to compete and win."
