'Text Message' To Empire: 'I'm Out 10 Weeks'
Mark "Text Message" Teixeira will be out 8-10 weeks with a strained right wrist. Then there's the month plus to be missed by Curtis Granderson, the bad back of Phil Hughes and the three-to-four month absence of Alex Rodriguez. They had better get their money's worth out of Robinson Cano before he skips the seven miles south to Flushing next season. The empty seats at The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street will be even more evident this year. All of this good fortune could not happen to a more deserving franchise.
