Teixeira Injury Mean Season-Ending Surgery?

The AARP Yankees got more bad news over the weekend. The injury to first baseman Mark Teixeira turns out to be much more serious than originally thought. The previously diagnosed 'wrist strain' morphed into a 'partially torn tendon sheath'—which could mean season-ending surgery. So, without Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Teixeira for a good stretch of time, the AL East might actually have a team worse than your 2013 Carmine Hose. Not to mention that fact that near-pensioners Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera are coming off serious 2012 injuries. Things could be a lot of fun at The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street.
