    Can you get Teixiera to tell John Sterling to knock off the “Teixiera Sends A Text Message” home run call? That would be great.

    Way to keep it up with another great interview, Derell. You are a great reporter who is great at what you do. With Jeter’s and A-Rod’s careers winding down, Teixera needs to step up.

      Thanks again for the great words Sam. I appreciate it, and Teix definitely needs to step it up!
