If you’re not on Twitter, I’ll have to explain this to you.
After tonight’s loss to the Red Sox, reporters asked Mark Teixeira about his slow start out of the box after his home run off of Vicente Padilla. He claimed he was making sure it didn’t go foul. The reporters all had to keep from laughing as Tex apparently said his explanation with a straight face. In case you missed the home run, it was hit pretty deep into Section 104 which is not close to the foul pole at all.
About an hour later,Tex tweeted what you see above reiterating what he said in the locker room about making sure the ball was going foul. David Robertson joined in the fun and responded to him.
I love this team so much. They’re such smart asses.
