I don't think I have seen anyone happier than this guy to end up as a Yankee. He was smiling from ear to ear, and just looked like he might burst. Girardi made sure he mentioned, as he handed him his new jersey, that he was a huge Mattingly fan as a kid growing up, and handed him number 25 (which also happens to be Girardi's number as a Yankee player, he now wears 27).
I thought he might have ended up with number 32, but 25 is okay, too. He was very happy answering all questions, and seemed even more excited that playing here meant that his family could see him play more because he is now closer to home.
That's all I have for now, I shut the tv off after Teixeira was done talking.
P.S. I might jump on the bandwagon earlier than I anticipated on this one.
